Partnering with other urban leaders means we can amplify our voice when it comes to pressing issues facing the millions of people we represent, which is why I’m thrilled to be reappointed to serve on the National League of Cities’ Human Development Committee (NLC). I look forward to continuing to work alongside my fellow committee members in pushing smart, effective policies that support our most vulnerable, strengthen the social safety net, and improve how government works for everyone.
This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC federal policy positions on issues involving social services, children and learning, poverty and income support, employment and workforce development, equal opportunity, Social Security and seniors, individuals with disabilities, public health care, mental health parity, and immigration reform. The appointment was announced by NLC President Joe Buscaino, councilmember, Los Angeles, California.
As a committee member, I will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocating on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.
The leadership of this year’s committee will consist of Chair Lindsey Horvath, Mayor Pro Tem, West Hollywood, California, Vice Chair Elizabeth Carr-Hurst, Mayor, Fairburn, Georgia and Vice Chair Kristin Stephens, Mayor Pro Tem, Fort Collins, Colorado.
