Mayor’s Statement Regarding Legislation Introduced Today in U.S. House of Representatives

February 10, 2021

Mayor Meghan F. George issued the following statement regarding legislation introduced today in the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Reform:

I am encouraged by this legislation and the progress it indicates toward funding COVID relief for local governments. The City of Lakewood needs this support. Last week, I reached out to our congressional delegation and asked them to use their platforms to advocate on our behalf for this funding because it is important, not just to the functioning of City Hall, but for our ability to keep Lakewood a safe, healthy, and thriving place where people want to live, work, and visit. Now, I implore the House Oversight and Reform Committee to pass this legislation out of committee and onto the full House of Representatives for a vote, with COVID relief funding for local governments kept whole.
