President Hardin[COLUMBUS, OH] - Last week, Columbus City Council President Shannon G. Hardin was elected to the National League of Cities (NLC) Executive Committee of the Board of Directors for the National League of Cities at its annual business meeting during the 2019 City Summit in San Antonio, Texas.

“I am honored to serve and represent the citizens of Columbus in this capacity,” said Hardin. “The National League of Cities is not only the voice of American cities in Washington, but a hub of best practices and policy solutions. I look forward to taking the Columbus perspective to the NLC board and bringing home new policy ideas for Columbus.” 

The National League of Cities advocates on behalf of local governments and state municipal leagues. The organization is dedicated to strengthening the capacity of local governance and advocating the interests of local communities. Member cities actively participate as leaders and voting members in the organization.
