“Representative Hammond is a true champion of local government. As a former Township official herself, she truly understands and appreciates the importance of Township government. I could think of no one more deserving of the TOI Presidents Award,” said TOI Executive Director Bryan Smith.
Hammond served as Emmet Township Trustee from 2002-2006 and as Emmet Township Supervisor from 2006-2014. The TOI Presidents Award is given each year by the President of TOI to a person who has shown outstanding support to township government and the association. The Award has been given annually since 1982.
“I am humbled by this honor,” said Rep. Hammond. “Township government does extremely important work that impacts the lives of millions of Illinois residents and taxpayers.”
