Kori Termine Wisneski, Deputy General Counsel for the City of Middletown, has received the 2021 Brad D. Bailey Award from the International Municipal Lawyers Association.
Each year, the Bailey Award recognizes an assistant local government attorney who has provided outstanding service to the public and who possesses an exemplary reputation in the legal community, the highest of ethical standards, and who revels in maintaining a life that balances a passion for professional excellence and the joy of family and friends.
Said Mayor Florsheim, “I am incredibly proud—but not surprised—that Kori’s outstanding work is being recognized with this award. She is among the best and brightest attorneys not just in the state, but in the country. The City of Middletown is lucky to have her.”

She has also been named a Rising Star by Super Lawyers.
About receiving the award, Wisneski said, “Serving the City I love is reward enough, but I am honored to be recognized in this way and to work side by side with others who care deeply for our community and its success.”
Wisneski is a summa cum laude graduate of Quinnipiac University School of Law, where she served as Publication Editor of the Law Review, and received her B.A. from the College of the Holy Cross in Economics.
