February 4, 2013 – Longmont City Council Member Katie Witt has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2013 Transportation Infrastructure & Services Policy and Advocacy Committee. This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC federal policy positions on issues involving transportation, including planning, funding, safety and security of public transit; streets and highways; aviation; railroads and ports. The appointment was announced by NLC President Marie Lopez Rogers, mayor, Avondale, Arizona.
As a member of the committee, Witt 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.
