San Leandro City Council Member Victor Aguilar was unanimously voted by his nationwide colleagues to serve as the 2023 National League of Cities LGBTQ+ Local Officials Committee President.

After being elected to the position Council Member Aguilar stated, “I am honored that my fellow National League of Cities colleagues would select me as the next LGBTQ+LO committee president. I will roll up my sleeves and address some of the pressing issues affecting cities throughout the country. For one, the Colorado Springs Club Q shooting continues to sting in my heart and mind.
