A Huber Heights city councilman was appointed to a national advocacy committee.

Huber Heights councilman Richard Shaw has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2020 Community and Economic Development federal advocacy committee, which develops NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving housing, community and economic development, land use and recreation and parks.

The NLC announced the appointment last week. Shaw is one of five Ohio elected officials to join this national committee.

“My continuing goal is the utilization of local, state and federal resources in a way that enhances economic opportunities while improving social conditions in a sustainable way for the residents of Huber Heights,” Shaw said in a release.

As a committee member, Shaw will advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress.

“NLC’s federal advocacy committees ensure policymakers in Washington understand the most pressing issues facing local communities,” said Joe Buscaino, councilman of Los Angeles, California, and President of the National League of Cities. “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.”
