Cynthia Chestnut Appointed to the National League of Cities

Gainesville Commissioner Cynthia Chestnut will serve for a year on a National League of Cities (NLC) committee, providing direction for the organization's federal advocacy on topics like housing, land use, economic opportunity and entrepreneurship.  

NLC President Victoria Woodards, mayor of Tacoma, Washington, announced earlier in August that Chestnut will be on the 2023 Community and Economic Development committee.  

In a press release, Chestnut said she is excited to learn from colleagues and bring knowledge back to use on Gainesville projects, like the 8th and Waldo revamp.  

"First of all, I am honored to have been asked to serve,” Chestnut said. “I look forward to networking with fellow commissioners from all across the country to learn innovative ideas to address housing, community and economic development, land use, recreation and parks, historic preservation and international competitiveness." 

The committee will also include the mayors of St. Louis, Missouri; Riverside, California; and Beaverton, Oregon.
