National League of Cities President James Mitchell, Jr., has announced the appointment of Houston Controller Ronald C. Green to the National League of Cities’ (NLC) 2011 Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations (FAIR) Policy and Advocacy Committee.
This Committee has the lead responsibility for considering NLC federal policy positions in the areas of national economic policy, intergovernmental relations, municipal bonds and capital finance, and municipal management and administration.
“These are challenging times for cities of all sizes, perhaps the most challenging in 80 years,” says Green. “Cities benefit greatly from the advocacy of the National League of Cities, and I look forward to serving on the FAIR Policy and Advocacy Committee to identify legislative priorities and strategies.”
As a member of the committee, Green will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions, while advocating on behalf of America’s cities and towns on Capitol Hill, with the Administration, and at home.
The chair of this year’s Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations Committee is David Hooks, council member, Homewood, Alabama.
