"She was very impressive," enough to distinguish herself among the 11 other candidates vying for 6 seats, said Miller, who sat in on the Nike Shoes Low Cut 2017
"One of the big areas that I think we still have a lot of interest in is transportation funding," he said.
But in the process, Goettel may be able to gather valuable information to directly aid her city.
"What I hear from every board member who leaves the board is they benefit from the kind of information and interaction with other city offices," Miller said.
The lobbying group is just beginning to formulate its legislative agenda for the next session, with policy committees meeting this week to start that process, according to Miller.
Goettel obtained her appointment on the board after interviewing with a nominating committee, which usually consists of 12 Sneaker Nike
Goettel was appointed to the position June 18 at the LMC's annual conference in St. Paul, as the organization celebrated its 100th anniversary. With the appointment, Richfield's influence may grow during the next three years, the length Goettel's term.
The last board member from Richfield in such a position was Wayne Burgraff, a city council member who sat on the board about 30 years ago and went on to become LMC president, according to Miller.
Among its criteria, the nominating committee considers the board's geographical makeup, and Richfield's status as an inner ring suburb was a factor in the selection, Miller said.

The LGA dollars could be taken away depending on who holds power in the Legislature.

Within that power structure, Goettel has an opportunity to influence the LMC legislative platform, but says she will consider more than Richfield's interests. "I like to think of myself as a regional thinker," she said.

The Richfield mayor will join a board of 19 representatives from disparate municipalities including the likes of Ely, White Bear Lake and Hopkins, the only other inner ring suburb with a member on the body.
