North Little Rock Alderman Debi Ross, was appointed to the National League of Cities’ (NLC) 2013 Military Communities Council (MCC). The MCC is a group of elected and municipal officials from municipalities that host or are in close proximity to a military installation and face unique challenges due to this circumstance.
Alderman Ross has long supported and partnered with Camp Robinson/Camp Pike.
She recently completed a term as chairman of the local Community Council.
The national Council’s objectives are to assist cities, NLC and state municipal leagues in gathering, sharing and analyzing information about opportunities, issues and policies of interest to military communities. It also serves to foster a spirit of cooperation between military installations and municipal governments.
As a member of the council, Alderman Ross will help strengthen connections between the council, state municipal leagues and NLC as a whole and ensure that the needs and concerns of military communities are represented in NLC policy and priorities. The group encourages the active involvement of military communities in the organization, its policy-making process and in programs at NLC.
