Versailles City Councilmember Mike Coleman has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2021 Transportation and Infrastructure Services Federal Advocacy Committee. Coleman was elected to a one-year term and will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy agenda and policy priorities. “I am proud to represent the interests of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and particularly the City of Versailles on this committee,” Coleman said. “Infrastructure is essential for quality of life and economic development.” As a committee member, Coleman will play a key role among a diverse group of local leaders in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocating on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home. “Our federal advocacy committees are the voices of what’s happening on the ground in our communities,” said Kathy Maness, councilmember of Lexington, South Carolina, and President of the National League of Cities (NLC). “I am proud to have Mike join NLC’s Transportation and Infrastructure Services committee on behalf of his residents. Together with a team of local leaders from around the country, we will work to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.” For more information on NLC’s federal advocacy committees, visit: www.nlc.org/advocacy/committees.
