Springfield Mayor Ann Schneider was elected to the board of directors of the Tennessee Municipal League (TML) during the League’s annual conference recently held in Chattanooga. Ken Moore, Franklin Mayor, was elected president.
Schneider 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 the Middle Tennessee region
Founded in 1940 and based in Nashville, TML is a nonprofit 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 TN General Assembly, represents municipal interests before state departments and agencies, and – working through the National League of Cities in Washington – seeks to influence federal legislation and policies affecting municipal governments.
As a member of the TML board of directors, she will propose and help determine legislation municipalities need passed into law and will establish policy priorities for the League.
The president of the Tennessee City Management Association, Tim Ellis, Goodlettsville City Manager, is also a voting board member.
