Washington, DC – Today, Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), presidential candidate, announced her commitment to the Leading Together 2020 Cities Agenda. Leading Together is the formative, nonpartisan platform from the National League of Cities that seeks to address the issues that keep America’s residents and local elected leaders up at night.
“Presidential candidates are committing to a vision for a stronger and more equitable America, and local leaders believe the 2020 Cities Agenda fits seamlessly into that vision,” said Joe Buscaino, President Pro Tempore, Los Angeles City Council and President, National League of Cities. “We thank Rep. Gabbard for her leadership and dedication to uplifting the voice of cities, towns and villages at this critical time in our nation’s history.”
The Cities Agenda is composed of four critical issues that we can make the greatest impact on as a united nation, including Building Sustainable Infrastructure, Creating a Skilled Workforce, Ending Housing Instability and Homelessness, and Reducing Gun Violence.
