Shoreline councilmembers head for D.C. for League of Cities conference

Friday, March 9, 2018

The NLC 2018 Congressional City Conference is being held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel located at 2660 Woodley Road NW Washington, DC 20008.

The Conference starts Sunday, March 11 and concludes Wednesday, March 14, 2018.

The purpose of the Conference is to hear directly from policymakers and thought leaders on the issues that matter to cities. Councilmembers will be brought up to speed on the federal policies that affect cities, the latest funding opportunities, and the emerging practices.

Shoreline Mayor Hall and councilmembers McConnell, McGlashan, Roberts, and Scully will be attending. Deputy Mayor Salomon and Councilmember Chang will not be going.

As soon as they return from the NLC Conference, they are all scheduled for the Council Goal Setting Workshop on March 16 and 17.

Because of the week of travel and workshops, council meetings scheduled for March 12 and March 19, 2018 have been cancelled.

I am betting that this trip for FOUR council members is paid for by our tax dollars. Did four members need to attend? Personally, I am still stinging from my real estate bill for the year which increased by 25% over last year, so reckless spending like this really strikes a chord. Two members of the council would seem sufficient representation. Virginia Donnelly, Shoreline
