“I am proud to announce the formation of the Republican Mayors Association. We aim to bring a fresh perspective to urban governance, one that blends traditional conservative values with innovative solutions tailored to the unique challenges cities face. It is my hope that through this association, we can create a network of like-minded mayors who can learn from each other, share best practices, and lead our cities to a brighter future.”

–– Eric L. Johnson, Chairman and President

Who We Are:

The Republican Mayors Association passionately supports strong and effective law enforcement and staunchly opposes efforts to defund or dismantle the police. By advocating for the election of Republican mayors who will champion limited government interference, free markets, fiscal responsibility, smart growth, and individual liberty, we are working to ensure that every city and town in America is safe, vibrant, and prosperous. Embracing the complexity and diversity of our nation’s cities and towns, the RMA is committed to sharing best practices, mentoring and supporting current and future Republican mayors, and upholding conservative principles at the municipal level.
