Advocacy Tools

The League represents municipal government interests at the state and federal levels with a dedicated team of legislative advocates that help ensure local voices are making local choices in our cities.

Guided by the belief that all politics is local and the best strategy for sustained legislative success is one that continually engages local officials' participation, we encourage all city officials to be active in the legislative process.
