Maplewood City Council member Sandi Phillips left Monday for the National League of Cities Summit in Los Angeles, she posted on Facebook.
“Honored and excited to represent Maplewood this week, and looking forward to hearing Elon Musk speak!” she said.
From the meeting’s website: “City Summit is the only opportunity for all local officials—elected and staff—to learn about the issues affecting local governments and expand their professional network. The conference provides education for leadership development, meaningful discussions on common local-level problems and new best practices to address the trends affecting cities.
“Exclusive to NLC’s fall conference, city leaders will get a chance to see how others successfully govern during mobile workshops around the host city, showcasing real-world solutions to issues facing local government.”
