Meet the 2021 Local IT Leader of the Year winners

Local IT leaders share their work, their thoughts on modernizing government and their predictions for next year.

StateScoop continues its coverage of the 2021 LocalSmart Awards by sharing interviews with winners in the Local IT Leader of the Year category.

City and county officials from around the country shared what they’ve been working on, what they think others in government — especially those who don’t work directly in technology — should be aware of and what’s on the horizon in 2022.
