Doraville Mayor Joseph Geierman was recently appointed to the National League of Cities 2021 Transportation and Infrastructure Services Committee, according to a press release.
The committee is responsible for leading NLC’s policy development and advocacy on transportation connectivity, including federal funding, safety and innovation in all modes of transportation. The Committee’s policy development includes working subcommittees on roads and bridges, transit, rail, aviation and ports as well as transportation technology.
“With its connections to highways, railways, and mass transit – along with close connections to two major airports – Doraville is uniquely poised as a transportation hub within Metro Atlanta,” said Mayor Geierman. “I look forward to this opportunity to serve my constituents and the National League of Cities by leveraging what I have learned in Doraville to help drive innovative infrastructure investments in the Biden administration.”
This year’s Committee leadership team consists of Chair David Sander, Mayor, Rancho Cordova, CA; Vice Chair Elaine Clegg, Council President, Boise, ID; and Vice Chair Barbara Odom-Wesley, Councilmember, Arlington, TX.
I am proud to serve over 380,000 constituents from Doraville to Tucker, Decatur (Unincorporated DeKalb), Lithonia, and Stonecrest. District 7 is one of the largest districts in the State of Georgia. With diversity, unique communities, and a wide variety of economic resources, I embrace the opportunity to leverage our resources to make DeKalb great!
