The National League of Cities has selected Councilmember Caryn Johnson to serve on its 2020 Energy, Environment and Natural Resources federal advocacy committee.

As a committee member, Councilmember Johnson will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns. 

“I am pleased to be appointed to this important NLC committee and to advocate for equal emphasis on issues important to the Town of Castle Rock and the State of Colorado, such as water conservation and air quality,” said Johnson.

Together, with a team of local officials from across the country, we will strengthen the federal-local partnership, and ultimately create stronger cities, towns and villages.”
