Councilman Polster helps push local issues in 2020
A Warrenton Town Council member serves on a national organization’s task force that will attempt to raise community issues in the 2020 presidential election.
The National League of Cities’ 2020 Presidential Election Task Force includes Sean Polster of Warrenton and 32 other locally-elected officials.
“Small towns like the Town of Warrenton weave the fabric of America and our citizens’ voices need to be heard by the presidential candidates,” Mr. Polster said. “I am proud to be working with a bipartisan group of elected officials to bring our local issues to the forefront of the national discussion, because our residents don’t want the political rhetoric, they want results.”
NLC President Karen Freeman-Wilson, the mayor of Gary, Ind., said: “Local leaders have a major part to play in the election next November. I’m proud to welcome Councilmember Polster (At-large) to Washington on behalf of the people of the Town of Warrenton. Thanks to his leadership and active participation, this task force will help drive forward innovative solutions to the most pressing challenges facing our nation’s communities.”
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) and Miami Mayor Francis Suarez (R) serve as the committee co-chairmen.
"Our local platform will not be governed by a single political party, idea or group,” said NLC First Vice President Joe Buscaino, an LA councilman. “Local leaders like myself believe that political parties are irrelevant to providing necessary services for Americans. This task force is diverse, bipartisan and singularly focused on the success and future of our nation’s communities.”
