SAVANNAH, GA (December 11, 2017)—The National League of Cities' (NLC) new president has appointed City of Savannah Alderman Van Johnson to serve as a Vice Chair of the NLC Advisory Council for the 2018 calendar year.  The Advisory Council is made up of past board members who are still in elected local office.

"What an honor to graduate to another level of leadership on the national level, said Johnson.  "This appointment ensures that Savannah stays ahead of the curve in federal advocacy efforts with this new administration and Congress."

"Alderman Johnson remains one of NLC's strongest advocates and remains on the front line in addressing issues that cities, including Savannah, are facing nationwide,” said Clarence Anthony, Executive Director of NLC. "We are fortunate to continue to have his experience on our leadership team."

Alderman Johnson will serve with Chairman Mike Sesma, from Gaithersburg, Maryland and Vice Chair is Joe Moore from Chicago.
