(Washington D.C.) – The African American Mayors Association (AAMA) is delighted to honor AAMA Board Trustee and Mayor of Washington, DC, Muriel Bowser, as the inaugural recipient of the Mayor Marion Barry Jr. Award for Public Service. The award, named in honor of the last D.C. Mayor elected to a third term, was established to recognize leaders who have carried on the legacy of service and leadership to the community through sustained commitment to local government.

“I am honored to receive this award, named in honor of our Mayor for Life, Marion Barry, whose footsteps I followed on January 2 when I took the oath of office for a third time,” said D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. “A third term is a special opportunity because I have a mandate from the people to be bold, to think big, to push the envelope, and above all else, to win for Washington, DC. Now, the work continues to ensure every Washingtonian gets a fair shot.”

Mayor Muriel Bowser was selected due to her historic re-election for a third term to lead our nation’s capital. As the first Black woman elected to a third mayoral term of any large American city, Mayor Bowser has led her city through once-in-a-generation crises and challenges with masterful skill and unwavering grace.

“Mayor Bowser is a friend, a colleague, and a role model for young girls and women throughout our nation,” said AAMA President and Mayor of Little Rock, Frank Scott, Jr. “In recognition of her historic re-election to a third term, we proudly celebrate her long-standing leadership and incredible achievements. This award is a testament to dedicated public service and Mayor Bowser is well-deserving.”

The African American Mayors Association (AAMA) is the only organization dedicated to representing over 500 African American mayors across the United States. AAMA seeks to empower local leaders for the benefit of their citizens. The role of the AAMA includes taking positions on public policies that impact the vitality and sustainability of cities; providing mayors with leadership and management tools; and creating a forum for member mayors to share best practices related to municipal management.
