The National League of Cities (NLC) appoints District 5 Councilmember David Luna to its Information Technology and Communications (ITC) Federal Advocacy Committee for 2022, his fifth term on the committee. NLC President Mayor Vince Williams of Union City, Georgia, announced Councilmember Luna's and other Mesa appointments this January.
The ITC Committee is responsible for developing policy positions and leading NLC's advocacy on issues involving broadband access and affordability, net neutrality, cable TV, phone services, spectrum issues, wireless facilities siting, smart cities, and cybersecurity.
"It is an honor to be appointed again to the Information Technology and Communications Committee," said Councilmember Luna. "This is a topic I have been passionate about since I joined the City Council and it's one that has become even more critical since the start of the pandemic. I'm looking forward to working with the committee to find fresh new ideas and innovations that we can bring home with us to help improve the lives of our residents."
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.
