Posted by Councilmember Englander on November 06, 2015 at 12:00 PM
This week, I joined my colleagues on the Los Angeles City Council in attending the National League of Cities’ Congress of Cities and Exposition Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The City of Los Angeles joined cities from across the country in this unique opportunity to share best practices and learn strategies to promote local economic and financial health, and ensure quality of life for all city residents.
Earlier this year, I was honored to be reappointed to represent the nation’s cities on the 2015 Public Safety & Crime Prevention (PSCP) Steering Committee. The PSCP committee is responsible for developing NLC federal policy positions on issues involving crime prevention, corrections, substance abuse, municipal fire policy, juvenile justice, disaster preparedness and relief, homeland security, domestic terrorism, court systems and gun control.
The National League of Cities (NLC) is the oldest and largest national organization representing municipal governments throughout the United States. Its mission is to strengthen and promote cities as centers of opportunity, leadership, and governance. The NLC serves as a resource to and an advocate for the more than 19,000 cities, villages and towns throughout the country.
