Yountville – League of California Cities® President Rich Garbarino appointed Yountville Vice-Mayor Marita Dorenbecher to serve on the League’s Environmental Quality Committee Policy Committee. Through this one-year appointment, Marita Dorenbecher will play an integral role in shaping League policy and positions on issues facing California cities. These policy positions serve as the foundation of the League’s advocacy efforts at the Capitol to protect and expand local authority.
"The League of California Cities does absolutely necessary and outstanding work on behalf of all our Towns and Cities. The valuable knowledge and experiences I have shared, through the League, inform my work on the critical issues confronting our home Town of Yountville and the State of California. I am honored and blessed to represent Yountville on the statewide platform of the League." Dorenbecher noted. She previously served six (6) years on the Community Services Policy Committee including time in a committee leadership role.
“Through their service on the League’s policy committees, city officials contribute real world perspectives and experiences to the League’s advocacy efforts on behalf of all California cities. Their work has a direct impact locally and across the state and is instrumental to the success of the League’s advocacy on the most pressing issues facing California local governments. Our unified voice is strong and has repeatedly proven to be effective in the Capitol, so I am grateful to local leaders for their service,” said League Executive Director Carolyn Coleman.
The League has seven standing League policy committees: Community Services; Environmental Quality; Governance Transparency and Labor Relations; Housing, Community and Economic Development; Public Safety; Revenue and Taxation; and Transportation, Communications, and Public Works. Close to 450 city officials serve on these committees, which develop the League’s policy positions and make recommendations on legislation for the League board of directors to consider.
Policy committees meet three to four times annually. Meetings in 2018 will occur in Sacramento in January, in Pomona in April, in Sacramento in June and in Long Beach in September in conjunction with the League’s Annual Conference & Expo.
