Hello ITGA Community,

As the new Board of Directors President of ITGA, I wanted to briefly introduce myself. My name is Steve Patterson and I am the Mayor of Athens, Ohio and former Associate Professor of Psychology at Ohio University (18 years). I served in the United States Air Force and the District of Columbia Air National Guard for over 20 years in both the Enlisted and Commissioned ranks and retired as a Major. I also currently serve on the Board of Directors for the National League of Cities, the Ohio Mayors Alliance, President of the Ohio Mayors Partnership for Progress and Vice Co-Chair of the National League of Cities Race Equity and Leadership Council. Finally, my wife Dr. Connie Patterson and I are the proud parents of 10 year-old twin daughters, Adelia and Alana.
