Schlossberg to Judge Lake County Municipal League Competition

Ruth Alderman Schlossberg has been invited to serve as a judge for the Lake County Municipal League’s first annual Cutting Edge Program. The winning community in the competition will be presented an award on Nov. 17 at the league’s annual banquet.

The Cutting Edge Program, which is open to all of the league’s municipal and county members, seeks to identify model programs in order to “encourage creative thinking to develop programs, policies or procedures that may be shared with municipalities in the county.”

The award will identify the programs, policies and procedures that successfully meet the needs or challenges of a community in a cost-effective way and that ultimately improve the quality of life for residents in the community. For details about the Nov. 17 event, please view the Lake County Municipal League’s event page.

The Lake County Municipal League includes 38 municipalities as well as 25 associate members, who are vendors for the municipalities. The law firm of Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle is an LCML associate member.

Schlossberg has practiced law for more than 20 years and has focused on local government law since 2003 for cost-conscious clients in McHenry and Lake counties. A graduate of the University of Michigan, Schlossberg also studied at the London School of Economics. She earned a juris doctor from Yale Law School.

With Richard G. Flood, she co-authored the book Congratulations! You’ve Been Elected: Now What Do You Do? A Practical Guide to Local Government. The guide, published by the Illinois Municipal League, offers local public officials advice to help them “hit the ground running” and succeed in new leadership positions.
