Post Date:12/20/2017 8:49 AM
At-Large Reno City Councilmember David Bobzien has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2018 Energy, Environment and Natural Resources (EENR) federal advocacy committee.

This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving air quality, water quality, energy policy, national wetlands policy, noise control and solid and hazardous waste management. The appointment was announced by NLC President Mark Stodola, mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas.

“Conservation is a passion of mine and that’s why I’m proud to be a part of the EENR federal advocacy committee,” Bobzien said. “Our Reno-Tahoe community is a place of natural beauty, and by continuing to work on these important issues, we’re protecting our quality of life and economic prosperity.”

As a committee member, Bobzien will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.

“Serving on an NLC committee is one of the most effective ways for a local official to advocate for their community in Washington,” Stodola said. “I am thrilled to have David Bobzien join a team of local leaders from around the country working to craft our policy platform and to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.”

The leadership of this year’s committee will consist of Chair Cynthia Pratt, deputy mayor, Lacey, Washington; and Vice Chairs Hattie Portis Jones, mayor pro tem, Fairburn, Georgia; and Gerry Horak, mayor pro tem, Fort Collins, Colorado.
