Council Member Mays Appointed to Serve on NLC’s TIS Committee

​​Wes Mays, City Council for Coppell, Texas, has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2020 Transportation and Infrastructure Services (TIS) federal advocacy committee. This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving transportation, including planning, funding, safety and security of public transit, streets and highways, aviation, railroads and ports. The appointment was announced by NLC President Joe Buscaino, councilmember, Los Angeles, California.

“I am very pleased to have been selected to serve on the Transportation and Infrastructure Services committee,” said Mays. “Coppell, having the DFW Airport, Dart Silver Line, and the major roadways in our area, can be significantly impacted by federal mandates. This committee assists and educates federal officials to minimize the negative impact on its member cities.”

As a committee member, Mays will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.

“NLC’s federal advocacy committees ensure policymakers in Washington understand the most pressing issues facing local communities,” said Joe Buscaino, councilmember of Los Angeles, California, and president of the National League of Cities (NLC). “I am proud to have Wes Mays join NLC's Transportation and Infrastructure Services committee on behalf of his residents. Together, with a team of local officials from across the country, we will strengthen the federal-local partnership, and ultimately create stronger cities, towns and villages.”

The leadership of this year’s committee will consist of Chair Dan Fowler, Councilman, Kansas City, Missouri, Vice Chair Krisanna Clark-Endicott, Councilor, Redmond, Oregon, and Vice Chair Elaine Clegg, Council President Pro Tem, Boise, Idaho.
