Mayor Feierabend Elected to Tennessee Municipal League Board of Directors

June 29, 2011

Margaret Feierabend, Bristol Tennessee Mayor, was elected to the board of directors of the Tennessee Municipal League (TML) during the League’s annual conference recently held in Murfreesboro. Feierabend was elected as one of eight district directors to represent her section of the state. She was nominated and elected during a district caucus of TML members from her region of Tennessee. As a member of the TML board of directors, Feierabend will propose and help determine legislation that municipalities need passed into law and will establish policy priorities for the League. She will serve a two-year term. TML is a non-profit organization founded by cities and towns for mutual assistance and improvement. Representing 99 percent of Tennessee’s municipal citizens, the organization advocates for needed legislative action by the General Assembly, represents municipal interests before state department and agencies, and working through the National League of Cities in Washington, seeks to influence federal legislation and policies affecting municipal governments.
