Our partners at the National League of Cities (NLC), the umbrella association which represents all of the states’ municipal leagues in Washington, has launched its effort to bring municipal concerns to the attention of candidates seeking election to federal office, in November of this year. Toward that end:
• NLC has launched the Leading Together 2020 Cities Agenda microsite. The Leading Together Cities Agenda reflects an understanding of Americans’ top priorities and concerns. Visit the site to take action, read the Agenda and issue briefs, or learn about NLC’s presidential election Task Force.
• Presidential candidate and former South Bend, IN, mayor, Pete Buttigieg announced his commitment to NLC’s Leading Together 2020 Agenda, pledging to work together with local leaders on the nonpartisan priorities laid out by local leaders from across the nation. NLC invites and welcomes commitments from all presidential candidates.
Our citizens expect and deserve all of their elected officials, at all levels of government, to work together to address their hopes and needs.
