As a member, Commissioner Fishman will help shape NLC’s policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.

On this council, Commissioner Fishman will help identify common trends across municipalities and develop policy options and responses for cities, towns, and villages.
