Brooklyn State Sen. Zellnor Y. Myrie is among 20 young leaders recognized by The Council of State Governments for bipartisan state leadership in 2022. The CSG 20 Under 40 Leadership Award recognizes the outstanding work of 20 up-and-coming elected and appointed officials from across the country who not only exemplify strong leadership skills but have also demonstrated a true commitment to serving the citizens of their states.
Recipients of the 20 Under 40 Leadership Award are selected from a competitive pool of applicants from across the country and all three branches of state government.
“I am humbled and honored to receive this recognition from the Council of State Governments and look forward to meeting other national leaders in this cohort that can help solve our country’s most pressing problems,” said Myrie.
Award recipients will be honored by state government leaders at the 2022 CSG National Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii, in December.
