Councilwoman Cindi Fowler (D-14) has been appointed 2016 Vice-Chair of the National League of Cities’ Large Cities Council. The Large Cities Council provides 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.
The appointment was announced by NLC President Melodee Colbert-Kean, Councilmember- Joplin, MO.
As Vice-Chair of the council, Councilwoman 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,” says 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.”
Councilwoman 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.
