Council Vice President Levon Manzie has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the National League of Cities (NLC). This board serves a critical role in guiding the national organization’s priorities and policies.
“We’re proud to have Councilmember Manzie serving on the NLC Board for the next two years,” Ken Smith, executive director of the Alabama League of Municipalities, said. “Having Alabama officials like him help shape the national policy of groups like NLC ensures that the interests of Alabama’s cities and towns are being heard.”
Manzie was nominated for the position at the NLC’s annual conference last month and was voted upon by attending members from across the country. He will serve a two-year term on the Board.
“I am honored to represent the great city of Mobile and our state on this national board,” Manzie said. “This role presents an enormous opportunity to continue to develop Mobile’s national profile while ensuring we have a seat at the table on issues of great importance to us like municipal bonds, CBDG funding and the Historic Tax Credit.”
