Culver City Councilmember Göran Eriksson has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2021 Transportation and Infrastructure (TIS) Federal Advocacy Committee.
Councilmember Eriksson will serve a one-year term on the TIS committee and will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy agenda and policy priorities. The appointment was announced by NLC President Kathy Maness, council member of Lexington, South Carolina.
“I am honored to be appointed to this important committee and enthusiastic to hit the ground running to develop policy priorities in areas such as fleet electrification and charging systems as well as drone integration and aviation noise,” Eriksson said.
“I am especially eager to help shape policy in areas like equity in transportation and the future of revenue and congestion pricing, which impact communities across the nation that might not otherwise be quick to adopt new transportation technology.”
As a committee member, Eriksson will play a key role among a diverse group of local leaders in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocating on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.
Council Member Eriksson also serves on the Culver City Council Mobility Traffic & Parking Subcommittee alongside Mayor Alex Fisch and the Ad Hoc LAX Subcommittee with Council Member Albert Vera.
“Our federal advocacy committees are the voices of what’s happening on the ground in our communities,” said Kathy Maness, council member of Lexington, South Carolina and president of the National League of Cities (NLC).
“I am proud to have Göran Eriksson join NLC’s TIS committee on behalf of his residents. Together with a team of local leaders from around the country, we will work to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.”
The leadership of this year’s committee will consist of Chair David Sander, mayor of Rancho Cordova, CA; Vice Chair Elaine Clegg, council president of Boise, ID; and Vice Chair Barbara Odom-Wesley, council member of Arlington, TX.
