Frisco councilwoman wins Colorado Municipal League board seat
July 9, 2014
Frisco Councilwoman Kim Cancelosi was elected last month to the Colorado Municipal League Executive Board by town and city officials from around the state during the 92nd annual CML conference in Breckenridge.
Cancelosi, who was re-elected in April to a second term on Frisco Town Council, previously served on the Colorado Municipal League’s policy committee, which vets legislation in the Colorado General Assembly and in Congress. Touting herself as an advocate for workforce housing, community development and outdoor recreation, Cancelosi said she sought a one-year term on the organization’s executive board to ensure that the interests of Frisco and Summit County are represented.
“Every year issues come up that are vital to Frisco, Breckenridge and all of the towns in Summit County, but as resort and smaller mountain town communities, the things we think are important may not be as important to other municipalities around the state,” Cancelosi said. “I think CML has worked really well to make sure all of the towns across the state are represented, but I wanted to make sure there wasn’t a void and that we had a voice also.”
Founded in 1923, the Municipal League is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization representing the interests of 267 cities and towns across the state. The Municipal League strives to provide high quality resources and services that empower municipal governments to sustain strong, healthy and vibrant cities and towns, according to its vision statement.
The Municipal League Executive Board comprises 19 officials and key municipal staff members who are elected by the organization’s membership at an annual business meeting. The board is responsible for overall finances, management and policy affairs for the league.
In addition to serving on the executive board and Frisco Town Council, Cancelosi has served on the Summit County Housing Authority, the Colorado Association of Ski Towns, High Country Conservation Center, Summit Education Foundation, the Summit School District Accountability Board for Frisco Elementary and the Summit School District at large.
