MARIETTA - Joseph R. Goldstein, City Councilmember, Ward 7, Marietta, Georgia, has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2020 Information Technology and Communications (ITC) federal advocacy committee. This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving telecommunications and information systems (and public access to these systems), privacy concerns, cable TV, phone services, spectrum issues, communications tower siting, universal service, broadcasting and defense of city rights-of-way from degradation caused by installation of communications facilities. The appointment was announced by NLC President Joe Buscaino, councilmember, Los Angeles, California.

“Being able to have many different cities stand up and amplify their voices in the information, technology and communication realms of federal policy is the best way we, Marietta and other cities, can be heard and for us to protect cities’ rights while working with both the state and federal governments and the private sector to promote growth and development in these areas,” Council Member Goldstein said. “Being on this committee will help keep Marietta abreast of current technology and communication issues affecting cities across the nation. I look forward to working with the members of the ITC committee and NLC.”

As a committee member, Councilmember Goldstein 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 Joseph Goldstein join NLC's Information Technology and Communications 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 Corina Lopez, Vice Mayor, San Leandro, California, Vice Chair Alix Desulme, Councilman, North Miami, Florida, and Vice Chair Joseph Goldstein, Councilmember, Marietta, Georgia.
