Danielle Rogers, Community Marketing Manager for the City of Newton, was recognized today among the top influencers in local government by Engaging Local Government Leaders. The ELGL Traeger Award honors the top 100 influencers in local government.
The award is named for Chris Traeger, the city manager for the fictional City of Pawnee, Indiana on the show "Parks and Recreation." He was known for his extreme energy and commitment to improving local government. According to ELGL, the Traeger List is not based on title or longevity. It’s based on an individual’s influence in their community and outside their community through professional associations, mentoring, and writing.
Rogers was ranked 54 out of 100 on the Traeger list. ELGL recognized Rogers for her out of the box thinking, exploring ways to enhance the communication and marketing content for the City of Newton, and her drive to promote education and collaboration.
