Looking back over his 38 years as mayor, Riley will talk about his experiences and share the challenges and opportunities he sees for our cities and towns in the coming years. Riley will also discuss the responsibilities of being a local elected official and how the work of mayors and councilmembers are important to their hometowns and the entire state.
