Councilmember Wright reappointed to Nat'l League of Cities committee

Donna Wright, Marysville City Councilmember, has been reappointed to the Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations (FAIR) federal advocacy committee for National League of Cities (NLC). As a member of this national committee, Wright plays a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and will advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the new administration and at home. She is the only committee member from Washington state.

“The issue I think is most important is that Congress not raise the interest rate on municipal bonds,” Wright said. “To do so would cost cities more to borrow the money needed to complete projects in our communities.”

The FAIR committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving national economic policy, general financial assistance programs, liability insurance, intergovernmental relations, census, municipal bonds and capital finance, municipal management, antitrust issues, citizen participation and civil rights, labor relations, Native American sovereignty and municipal authority. 

The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans. www.nlc.org
