Metro Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) will continue to work with representatives in other cities on issues that affect the health and well being of all Americans in the coming year.
National League of Cities President James Mitchell, Jr. announces Welch’s reappointment to the National League of Cities’ (NLC) 2011 Human Development Policy and Advocacy Steering Committee.
“I am honored to be re-appointed for the 3rd year to this most important Committee which makes recommendations for quality of life issues for our cities,” says Welch. “Our city has benefitted in numerous ways from the work done at the National League of Cities.”
This Committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC federal policy positions in the areas of social services, education, employment and workforce development, Social Security and seniors, individuals with disabilities, public health care, mental health, and immigration reform.
“The work of this committee becomes even more important as the President and Congress continue to turn around our economy,” says Welch. “Many cities are still faced with challenges in job growth and at the same time key components of the new health care law are continuing to take effect, it will be an important year for the NLC.”
