Normandy Park Mayor Earns ‘Advanced Certificate of Municipal Leadership’
George Hadley, Mayor of the City of Normandy Park, recently received an Advanced Certificate of Leadership (CML) from the Association of Washington Cities (AWC).
Mayor Hadley completed over 60 hours of training credits to earn this distinction, and demonstrated “valuable service” to his community, according to a statement.
The CML program is designed to enhance the ability of elected municipal officials by providing knowledge and skills to effectively operate within the law, plan for the future, secure and manage funds and foster community and staff relationships. To earn this certificate, participants attend a variety of AWC-sponsored municipal workshops. The courses help the mayors and councilmembers learn the essentials of municipal service and improve their ability to work with council colleagues, city staff, and citizens.
Mayor Hadley has served as a member of the Normandy Park City Council since 2004. Prior to being elected to the City Council, Hadley served on the Normandy Park Board of Adjustment. Hadley also served as Mayor Pro Tem from 2006 – 2009.
In 1998, Hadley retired from The Boeing Company and has been an active community volunteer in Normandy Park and the surrounding region. Hadley earned a S.B. Degree in Mathematics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1965 and also attended the University of Stuttgart (Germany) from 1973 – 1975. Mayor Hadley and his wife, Nancy, have lived in Normandy Park for almost 30 years.
