NEW: Murray Elected Leader of National Lt. Governors Association

Friday, July 20, 2012

 

Lt. Governor Timothy Murray was elected as chair of the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) at the association’s annual meeting in Chicago, IL. Murray will lead the NLGA, a bi-partisan, professional association that includes officeholders first in line of succession to the governor in all 50 states and the U.S. territories.

“The NLGA provides a platform for lieutenant governors to work in a bi-partisan manner to help advance policies important to all states and also share best practices to make all states stronger,” said Lieutenant Governor Murray. “As chair, I look forward to building upon this partnership to increase opportunities for lieutenant governors to advocate for key issues facing our states and the country.”

As chair, Murray is responsible for determining the NLGA’s agenda for the year and will lead the NLGA Executive Committee. Murray has stated investing in transportation infrastructure will continue to be a top priority for NLGA members, as well as preventing foreclosures and promoting the value of the National Guard to America and all states. The one-year term will continue until July 2013. Lieutenant Governor Murray has also served as chair-elect of the NLGA, treasurer and east regional chair.

“I salute the National Lieutenant Governors Association for wisely and unanimously electing Tim Murray as chair,” said Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. “Tim will surely bring all the thoughtfulness and effectiveness to the NLGA's national agenda that he does every day to our work here in Massachusetts.”

NLGA Executive Director Julia Hurst noted that Lieutenant Governor Murray “was elected to this position bi-partisanly by his peers."

At the annual meeting, Lieutenant Governor Murray joined Nevada Lieutenant Governor Brian Krolicki to co-sponsor a resolution urging the President and Congress to “address the nation’s housing crisis in a meaningful and responsible manner” that will help spur economic recovery “while avoiding any legislation or regulatory actions that will inhibit the recovery of the home building industry.” Lieutenant Governor Murray also co-sponsored another resolution with Virginia Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling that “calls upon all levels of governments to work cooperatively with the private sector, nonprofits, and academia to develop robust broadband awareness, adoption, and use programs.”
