Councilmember Michael Stinziano Represents Columbus in the National League of Cities

[Columbus, OH] - Councilmember Michael Stinziano has been appointed to the National League of Cities' 2018 Information Technology and Communications (HD) federal advocacy committee. 

This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving telecommunications and information systems (and public access to these systems), privacy concerns, cable TV, phone services, spectrum issues, communications tower siting, universal service, broadcasting and defense of city rights-of-way from degradation caused by installation of communications facilities.

The appointment was announced by NLC President Mark Stodola, mayor of Little Rock, Arkansas.

“As the Chair of the Technology Committee on Columbus City Council I am honored to represent Columbus and serve on the 2018 Information Technology and Communications federal advocacy committee. I look forward to bringing back progressive ITC policies and best practices from cities across the Nation that will have a thoughtful impact on the residents and businesses in our Columbus neighborhoods,” said Stinziano. 

As a committee member, Stinziano will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.

“Serving on an NLC committee is one of the most effective ways for a local official to advocate for their community in Washington,” said NLC President Stodola. “I am thrilled to have Michael Stinziano join a team of local leaders from around the country working to craft our policy platform and to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.”
