Marvin Heinze, councilmember, City of Coronado, has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2021 Energy, Environment and Natural Resources (EENR) Federal Advocacy Committee. Heinze was elected to a one-year term and will provide strategic direction and guidance for NLC’s federal advocacy agenda and policy priorities. The appointment was announced by NLC President Kathy Maness, councilmember, Lexington, South Carolina.

Heinze indicated the importance of environmental issues to Coronado and the South Bay. “The National League of Cities has supported our efforts to sustain additional funding for the Border Water Infrastructure Protection Fund (BWIP). Through membership in this committee I will be able to advocate for improved federal government support for fixing the Tijuana River cross border pollution crisis.”

As a committee member, Heinze will play a key role among a diverse group of local leaders in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocating on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.

“Our federal advocacy committees are the voices of what’s happening on the ground in our communities,” said Maness. “I am proud to have Marvin Heinze join NLC’s EENR committee on behalf of his residents. Together with a team of local leaders from around the country, we will work to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.”
