Last week, Sterling Heights City Councilman Michael V. Radtke Jr. graduated from Michigan Municipal League’s (MML) Elected Officials Academy Level 1.
In order to graduate, Radtke had to earn 24 credits on various municipal issues, including budgeting, regulations and non-discrimination. Radtke joins Sterling Heights City Councilwoman Deanna Koski, who is also a graduate of the program. Radtke has served on Sterling Heights City Council since he was elected in 2017.
The Elected Officials Academy is a four-level program that recognizes educational and leadership accomplishments of elected officials in Michigan. According to the MML, a broad array of programming is offered to mayors, presidents, councilmembers, commissioners and trustees and elected administrative officials to expand their knowledge and expertise. All elected city, village and member urban townships are invited to participate and several hundred officials have participated in this program since its inception in July 1997.
