Many of you know that I have been a long standing champion for continuing education. Now I will have a unique opportunity to learn from some of the best community and economic development folks in the nation. I just found out that I have been appointed to the National League of Cities’ Community and Economic Development Policy and Advocacy Committee (CED). This is a good fit given my interests in economic development, financial analytics, as well as my professional background. Knowledge learned in this position should benefit the citizens of Rochester.
Here is my offical quote:
“I am honored to have been selected for this national leadership position. This will provide my community access to some of the best community and economic development practices and professionals in the nation. I look forward to advocating for fiscally responsible community and economic development, learning from my peers, and sharing progressive policies that have worked in Rochester. Our continued commitment to education and renewal will help keep Rochester one of our nation’s most vibrant economies.”
