Tigard City Council president named to National League of Cities board
John Goodhouse, president of the Tigard City Council, was recently elected to the National League of Cities board of directors during the organization's City Summit held in San Antonio.
Goodhouse was elected to a 2-year term and will provide strategic direction and guidance for group's federal advocacy, governance and membership activities.
"I'm honored to have been elected to the NLC Board of Directors, to be a voice for the City of Tigard and the State of Oregon at the national level," Goodhouse said in a news release.
As a member of the board, Goodhouse will meet in regularly to guide NLC's strategic direction. Board members are selected by a 15-member nominating committee, and are confirmed by a vote from NLC's membership at the organization's annual business meeting.
"Our board of directors helps guide the National League of Cities' priorities and policies," said Joe Buscaino, National League of Cities president and a member of the Los Angeles City Council. "It is made up of an amazing group of local leaders and I am excited to work with them to lead with urgency in addressing homelessness, building innovation-driven economies and strengthening local-federal partnerships."
Goodhouse, an independent insurance agent and local business owner, has lived in Tigard since 1974. He previously served on the Tigard Planning Commission and the Tigard Chamber of Commerce's Government & Public Policy committee.
The National League of Cities is the largest and most representative organization for cities, their elected leaders and municipal staff, and advocates for city priorities in Washington by building strong federal-local partnerships.
