“I am proud to appoint a very qualified group of leaders to chair our committees,” Council President Klein said. “Each chair brings invaluable experience to their committee responsibilities and a passion for the many and varied issues that will come before them.”

“These committee assignments will continue to reflect the strong leadership and diversity of this council and will capitalize on the many strengths of our members,” said Council President Pro Tem Tyson.

Council President Klein will chair the Rules & Reference Committee.

Council President Pro Tem Tyson will chair the Finance, Health & Human Services, and Workforce Development committees.

Councilmember Elizabeth Brown will chair the Economic Development, the Administration, the Education and the Environment committees.
