We are less than a week away from the 2020 Presidential Election. Like so much of 2020, this election will look a little different.

That’s why I’m excited to join you at City Summit in just two weeks. Have you registered yet? We have added Jo Anne Jenkins, CEO of AARP to our outstanding lineup of keynote speakers. REGISTER NOW to safely connect with peers, corporate partners, and local elected leaders from across the country, right from home.
Sending you strength,
National League of Cities
President Pro Tempore, Los Angeles City Council
