Georgetown assistant city manager receives mentoring award

Mar 27, 2024

Georgetown Assistant City Manager Laurie Brewer has been recognized with the 2024 Mentoring Award from the Texas City Management Association.

The Mentoring Award is one of the most prestigious recognitions given in the State of Texas to city management professionals. According to TCMA, the award “recognizes a city management professional who has made significant contributions in the development of new talent and who has designed and implemented outstanding career development programs for local government employees.”

“Laurie is the type of local government leader we all strive to be,” City Manager David Morgan said. “Laurie’s personal accomplishments are impressive enough on their own, but her commitment to growing other leaders really sets her apart in the city management profession. Our success as a City is due in large part to the impact she has had on others in our organization.”

Brewer has been with the City of Georgetown since 2009, after serving in Hutto from 2006-09 as director of finance, and previously serving in Georgetown from 1993-2006. Her current responsibilities include overseeing the Finance, Water, Parks and Recreation, Library, and Customer Care departments, but her impact has been felt in many areas of the City over her time in Georgetown, including many of the enhancements to downtown Georgetown and the most beautiful town square in Texas.

Georgetown Assistant Public Works Director Jack Daly was one of Brewer’s team members who nominated her for the award.

“Laurie is unique,” Daly said. “Most people who are successful in a town of 15,000 people don’t find the same success in a town of 80,000. Many of her proteges can attest to her quiet but powerful leadership style, as well as the seemingly effortless ease in which she can bring disparate groups together to seek common goals and drive continual improvement. Georgetown is truly blessed to have Laurie in our organization.”

TCMA is an organization of local government professionals dedicated to promoting the highest standards of governance, service, leadership, ethics, and education while embracing individual and regional diversity to benefit our membership and the cities of Texas. The TCMA annual Professional Awards Program recognizes and honors outstanding individuals who have made significant contributions to local government in Texas.
