LOUISVILLE – Metro Louisville Councilman Kevin Kramer, District 11, has been appointed to the National League of Cities’ Information Technology and Communications Steering Committee.
He is one of only 35 local elected officials from across the nation who will serve on the committee.
The committee will evaluate issues and options on national technology policy, including reviewing staff reports, analyzing policy studies and drafting specific policy recommendations for the National League of Cities’ membership.
“This opportunity will be beneficial to the entire council and the community,” Kramer said. “It will allow the new Metro Council to hear about all the latest trends in a growing and dynamic field. Metro Louisville must attract technology and communications firms to the area if we want our economic development efforts to thrive and succeed in providing high-wage, high-skill jobs for our children.
“As a teacher, I help prepare our children for tomorrow’s workforce. Through this national committee, I hope to help position Louisville to recruit good jobs and ensure a bright future for our children.”
