City of Dover Councilman David Anderson has been appointed to the National League of Cities 2013 Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Policy and Advocacy Committee.
This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC federal policy positions on issues involving air quality, water quality, energy policy, national wetlands policy, noise control, and solid and hazardous waste management.
The appointment was announced by NLC President Marie Lopez Rogers, mayor, Avondale, Ariz.
"One of the issues [that] impacts those I am privileged to serve is national energy policy," Anderson said. "Everyday they're bled dry because of inane policies the last 20 years.
"My involvement in this committee has given me an avenue to represent the average person on a national level," he said.
As a member of the committee, Anderson will play a key role in shaping NLC's policy positions, while advocating on behalf of America's cities and towns on Capitol Hill, with the administration and at home.
The chair of this year's Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Committee is Matt Appelbaum, mayor, Boulder, CO. Serving as this year's vice chairs are Dina Higgins, councilmember, Mesa, AZ, and Bill Peloza, councilmember, Auburn, Wa.
