Vice Mayor David Butler Elected to League of California Cities Board of Directors
Rocklin Vice Mayor David Butler has been elected to the League of California Cities Board of Directors, representing the Sacramento Valley Division, which includes 59 northern California cities from Galt to the Oregon border. His term will begin after the League’s annual conference in early October. Butler will serve a two-year term.
Butler currently serves as a district representative on the Sacramento Valley Division board of directors and as a member of the League’s Transportation, Infrastructure and Telecommunications policy committee. Butler also serves as a member of the board of directors of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) and chairs the Placer County Economic Development board of directors.
“The state of California truly is the biggest obstacle to cities’ ability to manage our own affairs”, Butler said. ”I am grateful to have this opportunity, as a member of the League board of directors, to better represent Rocklin’s interests at the state level, as well as the interests of other cities in Placer County and northern California in preserving local control, protecting our budgets from raids by the state and advocating for long term solutions to transportation and infrastructure needs.”
Established in 1898, the League of California Cities is a nonprofit statewide association that advocates for California cities with the state and federal governments and provides education and training services to elected and appointed city officials.
