Midland City Councilman John B. Love, III has been elected President-Elect of the Texas Municipal League.
Love’s term runs from October 6, 2017 – October 11, 2018 at which time he will become President.
The Texas Municipal League (TML) represents 1,155 cities in Texas and is guided by a governing board composed of elected and appointed officials from member cities.
TML is the premier association for city governments in Texas, and takes an active role advancing a pro-cities legislative agenda at the State and Federal levels.
As President-Elect, and later President, Councilman Love will hold powerful positions to guide policy-making. Even after his term as President concludes, Love will remain a board member for as long as he continues to serve as an elected official. “I am honored to serve as President-Elect, and am excited about bringing a uniquely Midland perspective to this state-wide organization,” said Councilman Love.
Love is the second city official from Midland to serve as a TML officer. Midland Mayor Hank Avery served as the League’s President in 1964-1965. “It is time that Midland once again has a strong voice in shaping TML’s agenda,” Love shared.
“Councilman Love’s election as President-Elect is a boon to the City of Midland,” said City Manager Courtney Sharp. “His role leading TML in the coming years will bring attention to the issues that matter to Midlanders.”
Love was first elected to represent District 2 on Midland City Council in 2012, and was re-elected in 2015.
