    Colonna Uses Nat'l League of Cities Post To Bring City Leaders to LB This Summer


    (April 9, 2005) -- Using a national level post to which he was appointed in January, 3d district Councilman Frank Colonna is bringing the leaders of some of America's largest cities to LB this summer.

    As previously reported by LBReport.com, Councilman Colonna was named in January to chair the National League of Cities' "Central Cities Council," comprised of some of America's largest cities. The Central Cities Council (members listed below) is now scheduled to meet in LB from July 8-10.

    "I look forward to hosting some our nationís best and brightest city leaders, said Councilman Colonna in a written release. "This meeting will give the Central Cities Council a chance to address some of the major issues facing our cities, as well as give me the opportunity to showcase Long Beachís successes and the unique flavor of our international city."

    The release said that this year, the Central Cities Council "is focusing on transportation, community development programs and homeland security."

    The National League of Cities is a non-governmental organization representing the interests of cities (i.e. City Halls)...about 18,000 nationwide. The National League of Cities' web site describes the Central Cities Council including the nation's largest cities. Chairing the Central Cities Council puts Councilman Colonna among the National League of Cities leadership...and presumably in a position to influence the group's policies.

    The Central Cities Council Membership includes:

    Chair, Frank Colonna, Council Member, City of Long Beach , California

    Committee Vice Chairs:
