Mayor Christian Price has been named president of the League of Arizona Cities and Towns.
The organization held its annual conference this week in Phoenix. The 25-member executive committee represents the interests of 91 municipalities.
“It is a tremendous honor and incredible responsibility to be elected president of the Arizona League of Cities and Towns,” Price said. “This position gives Maricopa unprecedented access to state lawmakers, helps to protect her interests and recognizes Maricopa as an influential participant in statewide policy-making.”
The league offers resources and technical assistance to municipalities and represents the league on issues before the Legislature that could impact local government.
Committee officers are elected to two-year terms. Price was the treasurer. He will replace Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny as president.
