Alderman Scott Naumann Re-appointed to NLC 2018 Information Technology & Communications (HD) Federal Advocacy Committee

February, 2018 - Scott Naumann, Alderman, Bettendorf, Iowa, has been re-appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 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.

Alderman Naumann said, “It’s important to our Quad City region that we continue to have a seat at the table on the federal level.  Improved broadband services and other technologies are vitally important to our communities, as evidenced by our mayor and councils continued high prioritization in our annual goal setting meetings.”

As a committee member, Naumann 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 Scott Naumann 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.”

The leadership of this year’s committee will consist of Chair Gary Resnick, mayor, Wilton Manors, Florida; and Vice Chairs Corina Lopez, councilmember, San Leandro, California; and Stephanie Piko, mayor pro tempore, Centennial, Colorado.
