Council discusses infrastructure, economic development and social issues
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 22, 2015) — Cindi Fowler, councilwoman for District 14 in Louisville, has been appointed 2016 Vice-Chair of the National League of Cities’ Large Cities Council, a networking forum for members to discuss a wide array of issues that specifically affect large metropolitan areas, including infrastructure, economic development, and social issues.
As Vice-Chair of the council, Fowler will play a key role in informing NLC’s policy positions and advocating on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the Administration, and at home.
“I look forward to the conversations with leaders from across the United States in developing policy that will positively impact our cities,” said Fowler. “Large population centers, like Louisville, have unique problems and discussing these issues in an open forum with different points of view is the first step in identifying solutions that can benefit us all.”
Fowler has also been reappointed to the Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources committee, which takes the lead in developing policy and platforms regarding air quality, water quality, noise control and waste management.
NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns, and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
