|Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb|
Lt. Governor Lamb was named this week to the leadership committee for the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA). Lt. Governor Lamb will now serve as Chairman of the South Region for the NLGA Executive Committee.
“Lt. Governor Lamb was appointed bi-partisanly from among his peers,” said NLGA Executive Director Julia Hurst. “This affirmation of him by NLGA leadership speaks to the immediate and positive impact he made among his peers.”
The South Region includes Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
“Oklahoma continues to have a vision of growth that moves our state forward and gives us recognition nationwide,” said Lamb. “The opportunity to not only represent Oklahoma in the NLGA, but also champion who we are and what makes our state great is an honor.”
NLGA’s leadership committee is responsible for charting the course of issues and training to be pursued by the nation’s second-highest state officeholders. In addition to its specific duties, the committee will also address issues of mutual concern to all members.
“Through the National Lieutenant Governors Association, lieutenant governor colleagues across the nation work to share ideas and best practices that help each state in their work,” says Maryland Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, the NLGA Chair. “The position of lieutenant governor is one through which innovative partnerships can be formed to exert influence and deliver substance to the constituents of the states and territories.”
NLGA is a bi-partisan organization promoting regional collaborations and problem solving for almost 50-years. See www.nlga.us.
