House Speaker Beth Harwell has appointed Brentwood City Commissioner Elizabeth Crossley to the Tennessee Local Development Authority (TLDA). Ms. Crossley is the first woman to serve on the board.
Ms. Crossley, a former mayor of Brentwood, has a long history of involvement in civic affairs. She also serves on the state's Waste Water Financing Board.
“Ms. Crossley is a great addition to the TLDA board,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett, the board’s presiding member. “We are happy to have her as part of our team.”
TLDA provides loan funds to local governments to pay for water and sewer projects, pollution control facilities and certain other types of capital improvements.
