Starting in August, members of the state and local government technology community nominated more than 150 leaders and projects for the awards. From there, the StateScoop team narrowed the list to 80 finalists. Readers cast more than 750,000 votes between Sept. 23 and Nov. 11.
The 40 winners received the most community votes in their categories.
“As we close out 2022, StateScoop is honored to recognize these dynamic leaders in city, county and municipal government,” said Jake Williams, the vice president of content and community for StateScoop and EdScoop. “From Gallatin County, Montana, to Chicago, to Coral Gables, Florida, technology is playing an increasingly important role in residents’ lives. These leaders are the ones making that happen in an efficient, secure and prominent way.”
This year’s awards recognize leaders from 15 different states and numerous cities and counties.
