Longtime Waterbury Mayor Neil O'Leary has been elected 2018 president of the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM).

O'Leary, who succeeds Portland First Selectwoman Susan Bransfield, served in 2017 as CCM's 1st vice president.

He has helped push state legislative action on local revenue diversification, mandates relief, and greater regional service sharing among towns, said Joe DeLong, CCM's executive director.

As such, DeLong said, O'Leary will "play a key role in forging consensus on important state-local issues during the 2018 General Assembly session."

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin, East Hartford Mayor Marcia Leclerc and New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart are among the area leaders continuing to serve on CCM's board of directors.

CCM is the state's largest, nonpartisan organization of municipal leaders, representing 166 member cities and towns.
