Arvada, CO…….Arvada City Councilmember Bob Fifer has been appointed for a third term to the National League of Cities (NLC) Information Technology and Communications Steering Committee.

This Committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC 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 Ralph E. Becker, mayor, Salt Lake City, Utah.

“I am honored to represent Arvada, the region, and our state on national issues that impact our local communities,” Fifer stated.  “I believe it is important to ensure that local voices are heard at the national level so that decisions made do not inadvertently impact our communities and our quality of life.”

As a member of the committee, Fifer 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.
