Branson Mayor Karen Best has been elected to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2018 board of directors. She was voted to the NLC’s board of legislative action committee at the 2017 City Summit conference, in Charlotte, N.C. That means Best will join 49 local elected officials from across the country to govern and set policy for the country’s cities, towns and villages at this year’s NLC City Summit in Los Angeles, CA in November.
“This is a great opportunity for Branson because often times, smaller cities are underrepresented when it comes to making policy decisions that impact their communities. I’m looking forward to promoting Branson’s values and beliefs on the national level,” said Mayor Best.
The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans. www.nlc.org
