GJ councilman named to national policy post
Grand Junction City Councilman Bruce Hill was appointed Tuesday as chairman of the Community and Economic Development Policy and Advocacy Committee of the National League of Cities.
The committee addresses national policy issues relative to housing, community and economic development, land use, recreation and parks, historic preservation and international competitiveness.
It is one of the National League of Cities’ seven standing committees that develop policy positions and advocate on behalf of municipal governments.
“In light of the economic crisis, we must work with the new administration to ensure that the
needs of our hometowns are part of the conversation,” said Kathleen Novak, Northglenn mayor and National League of Cities president. “Issues such as infrastructure investment, housing and work force development, along with reliable sources of funding for municipalities are critical to building a stronger America. I will look to Bruce’s leadership on this important committee to help define our expectations and sharpen our message on behalf of cities and towns.”
The National League of Cities represents 19,000 cities and towns.
