Lansing, Mich. – The Michigan Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials (MBC-LEO) has elected new members to their Board.
Saginaw Mayor Brenda F. Moore has been elected President; Port Huron Councilmember Anita Ashford is the First Vice President; Delta Charter Township Trustee Fonda Brewer is the Second Vice President; Farmington Hills Councilmember Jackie Boleware is the Secretary; and Jackson Mayor Daniel Mahoney is the Chaplain.
They were elected to a term of two years as officers at the MBC-LEO Annual Meeting this past April in Lansing during the Michigan Municipal League’s CapCon. MBC-LEO is governed by an eight-member Board comprised of the President, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Chaplain, Fundraising Committee Chairperson, Education/Program Chairperson, and Information/Networking Committee Chairperson.
MBC-LEO was created to provide a forum for its members to collaborate, network, coach, mentor, share information, and provide support to one another in the State of Michigan. The Caucus works in cooperation with the Michigan Municipal League. Membership of MBC-LEO is comprised of local elected officials and municipal staff members and associates in the State of Michigan.
“I am very proud to serve as the President of MBC-LEO,” Moore said. “The Caucus is very important to me, and I am honored to have been chosen to guide my peers.”
Moore is a life-long resident of the city of Saginaw. She was born in Saginaw and is a proud graduate of Saginaw High School. Brenda also earned an Associate’s degree from Delta College. Mayor Moore understands the value of the family unit and is passionate about helping individuals receive the support and assistance they need to improve their lives.
Since her election to City Council in 2013, Moore quickly became involved with the Michigan Municipal League by attending conferences and training to understand her role as a newly elected official. Since then, she was elected to the Board of Trustees for the Michigan Municipal League where she has most recently served as President of the Board.
She has also served as 2nd Vice President and Interim President for MBC-LEO, President of the Elected Officials Academy, and the Municipal Finance Committee. Moore is also a member of the City County School Liaison Committee and hopes to positively impact our youth through her position on City Council.
“I am looking forward to serving in this role alongside my fellow MBC-LEO board members – Anita, Fonda, Jackie, and Daniel,” Moore said. “They are not only my colleagues, but people who I respect and enjoy working with. I am confident that we will work well together towards our shared goals.”
