Knapp to Become Town of Cary Budget Director

October 29, 2013

Karl Knapp, Director of Research and Policy Analysis at the N.C. League of Municipalities, has accepted the position of Budget Director for the Town of Cary, the League announced today. Knapp’s last day with the League will be this Friday, Nov. 1.

Knapp has been with the League in his current role since 2007. Prior to joining the organization, he served as the director of the Policy Analysis and Statistics Division for the N.C. Department of Revenue. He also previously served in a variety of roles with the City of Winston-Salem, including that of Senior Budget Analyst, and served on the staff of the General Assembly’s Fiscal Research Division.

During his time at the League, Karl has served as a resource for League members across the state. His timely analysis of legislation and anticipation of political issues for municipalities has allowed the League to better advocate on behalf of North Carolina’s cities and towns, and his willingness to assist members with questions and problems in their communities has contributed greatly to the League’s mission of helping to promote excellence in municipal government.

“Karl has been a tremendous asset to the League’s Governmental Affairs Team during my time at the League,” said Paul Meyer, NCLM Director of Governmental Affairs. “His understanding of municipal government and the General Assembly has helped position the League for many of its successes in recent years. All of us at the League congratulate Karl on his new position and wish him all the best.”
