Bettendorf Alderman Scott Naumann has been re-appointed to the National League of Cities 2018 Information Technology and Communications federal advocacy committee.
The committee is responsible for developing NLC’s 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.
“It’s important to our Quad-City region that we continue to have a seat at the table on the federal level. Improved broadband services and other technologies are vitally important to our communities," Naumann said.
As a committee member, Naumann 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.
