SAVANNAH, GA (December 11, 2017)—The National League of Cities' (NLC) new president has appointed City of Savannah Alderman Van Johnson to serve as a Vice Chair of the NLC Advisory Council for the 2018 calendar year.  The Advisory Council is made up of past board members who are still in elected local office.
