Pawlowski Attending NLC Conference

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski is attending the National League of Cities 2014 Congressional City Conference this week in Washington, DC.

More than 2000 elected and appointed city leaders are gathered through Wednesday to discuss federal policy issues of importance to local government.

“This is the members of the League’s best opportunity to communicate directly with the top elected and appointed officials in Washington,” said Pawlowski. “We hope to move them toward ending partisan gridlock and beginning to focus on ways to boost the economic recovery and enhance job creation activities in cities and town across America.”

The conference is being held at the Marriott Wardman Park in our nation’s capital. The list of speakers includes US Secretary of the Department of Housing & Urban Development Shaun Donovan, US Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, US Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, US Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and US Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina Johnson.
