(RALEIGH, N.C.) – Paul Meyer has been appointed director of governmental affairs at the North Carolina League of Municipalities.  Meyer succeeds Kelli Kukura, who recently resigned to become director of government affairs for North Carolina with Duke Energy. Meyer will assume his new role effective January 10, 2013.  

“Paul will represent our municipalities very effectively and professionally on a broad range of significant issues,” said Ellis Hankins, NCLM Executive Director.  He has strong and positive working relationships with many members of the General Assembly and municipal officials across North Carolina.”

Meyer has served as the League’s chief legislative counsel since 2009. He brings a robust knowledge of municipal issues with more than 15 years experience working on local government legislative and legal issues. Before joining the League, Paul advocated for county governments as a lobbyist for the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners. He is a graduate of Wake Forest University and earned a law degree from Campbell University School of Law.   

“Municipalities in North Carolina provide essential public facilities and services, and the decisions made in the General Assembly have a direct effect on the vitality of cities and towns,” said Meyer.  “I look forward to working with municipal leaders and legislators to help keep North Carolina’s cities and towns strong and attractive.”
