Councilmember Pasha Majdi (Vienna, VA) will shine a light on smart municipal planning at the Smart Regions Congress in Washington DC

Councilman Majdi provides a unique perspective from both the federal and local level, as Federal Policy Manager for the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and Town Councilmember in Vienna, VA. As a local, elected official in transportation-starved Northern Virginia, traffic solutions are always at the top of his political priorities, but funding sources are always elusive. He sees the federal infrastructure bill provides an opportunity to leverage private investment to solve problems at the local level. in addition, "Performance metrics for transportation projects are essential for energy efficiency and for spending federal, state, and private investment effectively" says Madji.
