Lafayette City-Parish Council Chairman Kenneth Boudreaux has been tapped by the National League of Cities to help shape the organization’s policies on issues such as gun control, court systems and domestic terrorism, according to a city-parish government press release Tuesday.
Boudreaux will represent the interests of U.S. cities and towns on the 2018 Public Safety and Crime Prevention federal advocacy committee before Congress, as well as in Lafayette.
“Serving on an NLC committee is one of the most effective ways for a local official to advocate for their community in Washington,” NLC President Mark Stodola said. “I am thrilled to have Kenneth Boudreaux join a team of local leaders from around the country working to craft our policy platform and to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.”
The appointment marks his second position with the NLC, having served on the organization’s 2017 Education and Natural Resources committee.
