Mayor Holt elected to highest level of national Mayoral leadership

Post Date:07/02/2020 1:35 PM

Mayor David Holt has been elected by his mayoral peers as a Trustee of the United States Conference of Mayors.  

Trustee is the highest level of leadership for the Conference, which is the nation's official organization for cities with populations over 30,000. After just two years in office, Mayor Holt joins 14 other mayors as a Trustee, including the mayors of New York, Boston, Houston, Miami and Austin. Mayor Holt’s election as a Trustee is effective for as long as he is a mayor and makes him a member of the Conference’s executive committee.  

“The U.S. Conference of Mayors is a special organization because it represents the cultural and economic engines of our nation,” said Mayor Holt. “Mayors have led the way through this challenging 2020, and the Conference has never been more respected or relevant. I’m honored to work closely with the finest leaders in our nation, and I’m humbled at the responsibility with which they have entrusted me."

Mayor Holt also serves as Vice Chair of the International Affairs Committee, serves on the Finance and Audit Committee, and is moving up from the Advisory Board, to which he was elected in 2019. Former Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett served as President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors from 2016-2017. Oklahoma City, which ascended this year to the nation’s top 25 largest cities by population, hosted the Conference's annual meeting in 2010.
