The National League of Cities appointed the Ridgeland Mayor Gene McGee to their 2022 Information Technology and Communications Federal Advocacy Committee.

“I am honored to have been chosen to serve on the ITC Committee,” McGee said. “Information technology and communications are indispensable this day and age, and cities like Ridgeland depend on the availability of cutting edge technology for its continuous progression.”

NLC President Mayor Vince Williams made the announcement on Jan. 12 of Union City, Georgia. As a member of NLC’s ITC committee, McGee will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocating on behalf of America’s municipalities before Congress, with the administration and at home.

Williams said that McGee was elected to a one-year term and will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy agenda and policy priorities. The announcement was made on Jan. 12.

“NLC’s federal advocacy committees are a key tool for gathering insights directly from the communities that our members serve,” Williams said. “I am excited to have Mayor McGee serve on the ITC committee and look forward to working with him to fulfill the promise of America’s cities, towns and villages.” 

The full leadership of this year’s committee will consist of Chair Chrelle Booker, Mayor Pro Tempore, of Tryon, North Carolina; Vice-Chair Joseph Goldstein, Councilmember, of Marietta, Georgia; and Vice-Chair Van Johnson, Mayor of Savannah, Georgia.
