Burlington Mayor Ronnie K. Wall was recently named a co-chair of the North Carolina Metropolitan Mayors Coalition Public Safety Committee. Mayor Kevin Foy of Chapel Hill, Chair of the Executive Committee, established advocacy committees to further develop items for the Coalition’s agenda. Committee members will work with Coalition staff to advance these items.
Members of the North Carolina Metropolitan Mayors Coalition met on December 5, 2008 in Winston-Salem. The gathering of mayors, city managers and their representatives was designed to discuss the general strategic direction of the Coalition, answer specific organizational questions, and focus the Coalition’s limited resources on the most important and relevant activities. Legislative and advocacy priorities for the upcoming legislative biennium were also discussed. The Coalition Director, Julie White, visited each mayor and city manager in the Coalition over a two month period to gather data in preparation for the December retreat.
