If you go to their site icma.org , you'll see that this is just a 501(c) that just prints literature touting itself. This is a useless award that you have to apply for yourself and take a multiple-choice questionnaire that cost $245 to take. If there was any actual checking by this supposed organization, they'd realize that Mr. Lewis fails their "highest standards of honesty and integrity in local governance" that they claim for their core beliefs.

Easy, folks. Mr. Lewis had to complete some continuing education courses to get his certificate: CRP 505, City Budgeting in a Meth-Addled Hellscape; CRP 666, Retail Planning in Hazzard County--When Wal-Mart is Your Only Hope; CRP 412, Police Recruiting from the Bottom Quintile; SOC 506, Insane Asylums and the Breakdown of the Manson Family; POLS 902, Political Participation in the Absence of General Literacy; and POLS 903, Consensus Building in a Community Devoid of Personal Integrity.
