Gillespie, McAuliffe to Open Congressional City Conference


Hogan, Cyndy Liedtke, Nation's Cities Weekly


Former heads of the country's major political parties will be the speakers for the opening general session of the 2012 Congressional City Conference in March in Washington, D.C.

Ed Gillespie, former counselor to the President and former chairman of the Republican National Committee and Terry McAuliffe, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and chairman of Hillary Clinton for President, will speak on Monday, March 12, to attendees of NLC's legislative conference.

Gillespie and McAuliffe will offer their perspectives on the 2012 election, which will be an area of focus for the conference and NLC in the coming year.

"As we enter this critical election year, it is important that we hear from each of the parties to learn what they plan on doing on behalf of our nation's cities," said NLC President Ted Ellis, mayor of Bluffton, Ind.
