Alexandria City Council member Owen Miller receives award
Alexandria City Council member Owen Miller was recognized by the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities (CGMC) July 25 during the coalition's three-day summer conference in Bemidji for his excellence in service to Greater Minnesota.
The Excellence in Service Award is given annually to a city leader who demonstrates knowledge, leadership and active participation in CGMC program areas over the past years.
As a long-time active member of the CGMC, Miller continuously demonstrated his commitment to advancing the economies of Greater Minnesota communities.
This year, he devoted significant time and energy into the development of the Greater Minnesota Economic Development Partnership's proposals and recruiting members to join this coalition of cities, businesses, nonprofit organizations, chambers of commerce and economic development authorities.
CGMC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization representing 85 cities outside of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. The coalition educates legislators about issues important to Greater Minnesota.
