SAN ANTONIO (January 16, 2024) – District 4 Councilwoman Dr. Adriana Rocha Garcia was elected to the National League of Cities (NLC) Board of Directors by NLC’s membership at the organization’s 2023 City Summit in Atlanta, GA. The District 4 Councilwoman was elected to a one-year term and will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy, governance, and membership activities. NLC is the largest and most representative organization for cities, their elected leaders and municipal staff, and advocates for city priorities in Washington by building strong federal-local partnerships.

“As a Latina leader who was born and raised in San Antonio, it is a distinct privilege of representing our dynamic city as we usher in an era of transformational change and life-changing investments in people and communities,” stated the District 4 Councilwoman. “In my role as the Chair of the Human Development Committee, I will continue sharing the importance of initiatives like Ready to Work, the Strategic Housing Implementation Plan, and our historic Housing Bond as we work to address inequities and generational poverty.” 

As a member of the board, the District 4 Councilwoman will meet in March, June and November to guide NLC’s strategic direction. Board members are selected by a 15-member nominating committee comprised of elected officials from across the U.S. and are confirmed by a vote from NLC’s membership at the organization’s annual business meeting. 

“The National League of Cities Board of Directors plays an essential role in guiding our organization’s priorities and programming,” said National League of Cities (NLC) President David Sander, mayor-elect of Rancho Cordova, CA. “I look forward to working closely together with this remarkable group of leaders to elevate the voices and priorities of cities, towns, and villages across America over this next very important year.”

More than 3,000 mayors, councilmembers, and other delegates from nearly every state and the District of Columbia convened in Atlanta for City Summit. Local leaders are on the frontlines of the nation’s most pressing challenges and are working hard to pioneer innovative solutions that move our cities, towns, and villages forward.
