GREENFIELD — Two local officials have been elected to leadership positions of the Massachusetts Municipal Association.

Greenfield Mayor William Martin was elected president of the Massachusetts Mayors’ Association, a sub-organization of the Massachusetts Municipal Association. At-Large Councilor Isaac Mass was elected second vice president of the Massachusetts Municipal Councilors’ Association.

“It’s a great day for Greenfield when our small community is represented by two top statewide positions,” Martin said in a statement. “I am looking forward to advocating for Greenfield at the state level. We have other western Mass. officials representing the interests of Franklin County, as well.”

The Massachusetts Municipal Association is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association that provides advocacy, training, publications, research and other services to cities and towns. It is the only statewide organization that brings municipal officials together to establish unified policies, to advocate for those policies and to ensure the effective delivery of services to residents.

Martin will also serve on the MMA Executive Board. Northampton Mayor David Narkewicz will take Martin’s place as the District 1 representative for the Massachusetts Mayors’ Association, which represents the 11 mayors of the four western Massachusetts counties.
