Duck Mayor Don Kingston continues role on NCLM Board of Directors

Town of Duck Mayor Don Kingston was sworn in to continued service on the North Carolina League of Municipalities Board of Directors, representing District 1.

The NCLM is an organization which represents the interests of cities and towns in the state of North Carolina. League members work to improve the quality of life for their residents.

Cary County council member Jennifer Robinson was elected president, while Salisbury Mayor Karen Alexander will serve as vice president with their freshly elected league Board of Directors.
