The National League of Cities (NLC) appoints District 2 Councilmember Julie Spilsbury to its Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations (FAIR) Federal Advocacy Committee for 2022. NLC President Mayor Vince Williams of Union City, Georgia, announced Councilmember Spilsbury's and other Mesa appointments this January.
The FAIR Committee is responsible for developing policy positions and leading NLC's advocacy on issues involving intergovernmental relations, Census, municipal bonds and capital finance, municipal management, tax reform, anti-trust issues, citizen participation and civil rights and labor relations.
"Bringing the Arizona perspective to the FAIR committee is important and I am glad to provide that viewpoint, said Councilmember Spilsbury. "I look forward to meeting and working with my colleagues on this committee to shape policies that will make an important difference in cities across the country."
NLC's Federal Advocacy Committee members include local elected officials and city staff from NLC member cities and towns across the country who are committed to discussing and influencing federal policy that has a direct and profound impact on local government operations.
The National League of Cities is the nation's largest and most prestigious organization devoted to strengthening and promoting cities as centers of opportunity, leadership and governance. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, town and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans. The City of Mesa joined NLC in 1966.
