COUNCILMAN ALIX DESULME, Ed.D., APPOINTED TO SERVE ON NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIES’

North Miami, FL – 12/12/2018

COUNCILMAN ALIX DESULME, Ed.D., APPOINTED TO SERVE ON NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIES’ INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE


North Miami Councilman, Alix Desulme, Ed.D, has been appointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2019 Information Technology and Communications federal advocacy committee. This committee has the lead responsibility for developing NLC’s federal policy positions on issues involving telecommunications, information systems, and public access to these systems. The committee’s work also addresses privacy concerns, cable TV, phone services, spectrum issues, communications tower siting, universal service, broadcasting and defense of city rights-of-way from degradation caused by installation of communications facilities. The appointment was announced by NLC President Karen Freeman-Wilson, mayor, Gary, Indiana.   

“North Miami is a City well poised for the future,” said Desulme. “When you think about federal, state and local governments of tomorrow, communication technology is always a part of the equation.  As elected officials, we are responsible for making sure that as the scope of modern telecommunication evolves, that our communities and the people we serve are also adapting at an appropriate rate. This appointment is truly an honor.”   

As a committee member, Desulme will play a key role in shaping NLC’s policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home. This is the third consecutive year Desulme has been appointed to the NLC’s Information Technology and Communications Committee.
