Requests for Appearances

Mayor Mahoney greatly enjoys taking part in activities throughout our community and gladly accepts requests for his appearance at events. Please contact Executive Assistant Kember Anderson to make your request.

When doing so, please provide as much notice and detail as possible within your email (including whether or not you are requesting the Mayor to speak at the event). Once your request is reviewed, the Mayor's Office will notify you via email of a decision regarding the Mayor’s availability to attend your requested event.

Due to the volume of requests, please understand that Mayor Mahoney may not be able to personally accommodate all requests. We respectfully request that you do not use Mayor Mahoney's name on any public relations material (i.e., notifications, invitations or agendas) until you have received written approval from his office.
