The City of Moorhead presented outgoing Mayor Johnathan Judd with the first of what’s expected to become a regular citywide honor — the MoorHeart Award, created to acknowledge individuals who go above and beyond to demonstrate community within our City by their actions and service.
City manager Dan Mahli surprised Judd with the presentation at his final council meeting Monday. He cited his accomplishments since his election in 2018: “fighting floods, a few blizzards and a global pandemic; standing with the community through difficult ongoing conversations around equity, unrest and justice; advocating for the city at state and national levels for infrastructure projects, flood mitigation and to level the playing field for businesses on the state border; and, at every opportunity and every level lifting and encouraging city staff to carry out the important work of delivering essential services to the good people of Moorhead.”
Designed and fabricated by Moorhead artist Karmen Rheault, the award is intended to be awarded to Moorhead residents nominated by their fellow citizens. Criteria and a nomination form can be found at cityofmoorhead.com/about-the-city/moorhead-more-heart-award.
