Council Member Levison Appointed to Three National Committees
MARCH 3, 2011 - Longmont Council Member Sarah Levison has been appointed to three committees of the National League of Cities for 2011. She will serve on the:
City Futures Panel on Democratic Governance, which works to help city officials engage the public on local governance;
Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations Policy and Advocacy Steering Committee, which develops NLC federal policy positions while advocating on behalf of America’s cities and towns with the U.S. Congress and the White House;
Council on Youth, Education and Families, which helps municipal leaders identify and develop effective strategies for strengthening families.
Levison says she is excited about the work of these committees and the challenges that lie ahead. But she is looking forward to working on behalf of families. “One of my life passions is working on behalf of youth and addressing their issues,” Levison said. “My appointment to the YEF Council gives me an opportunity to advocate for young people in Longmont and in other communities.”
The National League of Cities is the nation’s oldest and largest organization resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans. For more information on NLC’s other committees and councils, visit www.nlc.org/inside_nlc/committeescouncils.aspx.
