Duncanville District 5 City Council Member Johnette Jameson has been elected Board Member of the National League of Cities (NLC) Women in Municipal Government (WIMG). This group supports networking and learning among female municipal leaders. Jameson was elected during the 2019 City Summit conference in San Antonio, Texas.

WIMG aims to raise awareness about issues of concern to women, and it encourages women to seek public office in their communities. Over the years, WIMG has worked to ensure that women hold leadership positions within NLC and serve on its board of directors and other special leadership groups.

“I am passionate about serving the community and believe that women in leadership positions play an important role in all levels of government,” said Council Member Johnette Jameson. “Organizations should have a healthy mix of male and female perspective in order to balance the dialogue, and I am proud to support the advancement of female elected officials in municipal government”.

As a leader in this constituency group, Jameson will play a key role in promoting a role for women in NLC policy discussions and development of its National Municipal Policy and its agenda for America’s cities, towns, and villages.

The leadership of this year’s committee also includes President Lindsey Horvath, mayor pro tempore, West Hollywood, California; 1st Vice President Wally Campbell, mayor, Goodyear, Arizona and 2nd Vice President Elizabeth Carr-Hurst, mayor, Fairburn, Georgia.
