Kwasi Fraser, the third-term mayor of Purcellville, has been appointed to the National League of Cities’ Transportation and Infrastructure Services Federal Advocacy Committee, which leads policy development and advocacy on transportation connectivity.
According to a town statement, Fraser will “play a key role in shaping [the league’s] policy positions and advocate on behalf of America’s cities and towns before Congress, with the administration and at home.”
“I am honored to be appointed to the [committee],” Fraser stated. “I look forward to collaborating with fellow committee members to identify and to advocate innovative and effective solutions for our local, regional and national transportation and infrastructure challenges.”
Karen Freeman-Wilson, the league’s president and the mayor of Gary, IN, welcomed Fraser’s help to “to solve the most pressing challenges facing our communities.”
Fraser is one of 26 mayors on the 71-member committee. He and Dumfries Mayor Derrick Wood are the only two Virginia mayors on the panel.
