LMC had a special visitor today when Clarence Anthony, executive director of the National League of Cities, stopped by! He's seen here talking with LMC President Steve Nasby of Windom (left) and LMC Insurance Trust Administrator Pete Tritz (right).
Anthony was on his way to meet with St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman (former NLC president) but made some time to meet with the League board, who had their monthly meeting today. Talk about great timing.
In his comments to the board, Anthony stressed the value of city government’s ability to “get the job done” at the local level and the challenge of advancing legislation that's good for cities in the midst of federal gridlock. He talked about NLC’s advocacy efforts on federal issues that affect cities across the nation and encouraged Minnesota city leaders to get involved, including serving on NLC committees and the board.
