Mayor Christenson will review progress the past year and reveal new initiatives for 2023 and beyond

    Mayor Gary Christenson and his staff have been hard at work preparing the annual “State of the City” online presentation, one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year.

   This year the presentation will be made online via a city of Malden affiliated YouTube link with the presentation released to the public on Wednesday, March 1.

    Mayor Christenson, who is a candidate for reelection this fall seeking a fourth consecutive term, is expected to provide an in-depth, detailed review of the past year 2022 in his online presentation on March 1st, noting progress, achievements and milestones across the entire city.

     The presentation, as usual, will touch on all city departments, as well as focusing on people, events and other happenings around the community. The Mayor and his staff always include many of the myriad ways its residents and others have contributed to the fabric and culture of the community in the past year.

    In addition to reviewing 2022, Mayor Christenson is also expected to have a “reveal” or possibly several of them to make on March 1st for Malden’s citizens and municipal employees and staff. This would be something that has not been made public before next Thursday; always a great reason to tune in.

   This will be the third year the “State of the City” has been presented online via YouTube. The previous presentations in 2021 and 2022 were very well-received and this form has become popular with residents and staff, as were the in-person events in previous years as presented by the Mayor.

    One popular addition each year in the “State of the City” has been the inventive “themes” of the presentations. Last year, the theme was “Nedflix,” a takeoff on the Malden mascot name of “NEDLAM”.
