Gatlinburg Mayor Mike Werner has been elected President of the Tennessee Municipal League.
The TML elected its 2020-2021 Board of Directors during its annual business meeting, which was held recently via video conference.
As TML President, Werner will lead the organization as it determines and proposes legislation that cities want passed into law. He also plays a major role in the National League of Cities, which represents municipalities with Congress and the Federal Government.
“TML has been very instrumental in supporting legislation for cities of all sizes. Large and small communities across the state are looking for similar solutions to local problems,” Werner said. “As president, I will work hard to accomplish the League’s goals and legislative priorities.”
Other board elections include three vice presidents: Ken Moore, Franklin mayor; Bobby King, Henderson mayor; and Ron Williams, Farragut mayor. TML vice presidents are traditionally in line to serve as president.
