KATHIE NOVAK Joins CPBB as Senior Advisor

KathieThe Center for Priority Based Budgeting is thrilled and honored to announce an exciting new partnership with Kathie Novak, a former long-term Council member, former two-term Mayor of the City of Northglenn, Colorado, and former President of the National League of Cities. She joins CPBB Founders Jon Johnson and Chris Fabian in bringing the dynamic and established concepts of Fiscal Health and Priority Based Budgeting to local governments nationwide. Kathie's wealth of experience and insights from the perspective of an elected official will truly enhance and energize the work of the CPBB. Welcome and congratulations Kathie!

Kathie states, "I so believe in what the Center is doing…helping elected officials and communities really understand their financial situation, better communicate that information to their citizens, and use that information to make the best decisions possible for their communities in light of  changing economic situations.    The tools they have developed help policy makers move from the “What we know we need/would like to do”  to the “How do we actually make it happen.”  I wish I had this available when I was in office!"
