CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER ANNOUNCES NATIONAL POSITION FOR KANSAS CITY LEADER
Kansas City – Congressman Cleaver is pleased to announce the appointment of Kansas City Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo to serve as a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Local Government Advisory Committee.
“This appointment is something I strongly supported because I believe it is good for Kansas City. Mayor Pro Tem Circo is a champion for the environment and a leader in our area,” said U.S. Representative Emanuel Cleaver, II. “ She not only talks the talk, but walks the walk, and gets things done. This is an opportunity for her to do the same on a national level, while bringing deserved attention and prestige to Missouri’s Fifth District.”
The Local Government Advisory Committee is responsible for advising and making recommendations to the EPA Administrator on issues surrounding partnerships and capacity to deliver environmental programs and services.
“I look forward to sharing our experiences here in Kansas City with the EPA’s Local Advisory Committee. I hope to work with the EPA to help create solutions that protect and enhance our environment while respecting the economic realities that local governments are facing today,” said Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo.
The EPA cited Circo’s experience and perspective as valuable assets to the agency as exploration continues concerning ways in which national policy can assist and affect state and local governments.
“Mayor Pro Tem Circo will be a valued voice on the EPA’s Local Advisory Committee. Her leadership of the Overflow Control Program and her commitment to green solutions has helped move our city forward,” said Kansas City Mayor Sly James.
Congressman Cleaver has long advocated the need for local, state and national agencies to work together to achieve a level of cooperation and collective idea sharing to better serve constituents. He believes Circo’s unique ability to form consensus will be invaluable in this effort.
“Hearing directly from state, local and tribal leaders is essential to EPA's success in protecting human health and the environment in communities across the country," said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. “Mayor Pro Tem Circo’s unique experience and perspective will be a great asset to the Agency's Local Government Advisory Committee; I look forward to working with her.”
Circo will serve a two year term ending in November of 2014. This is in addition to her role as Mayor Pro Tem in Kansas City.
