Wright, who has served nearly 20 years on the City Council, was recently appointed to the group's Finance, Administration and Intergovernmental Relations Steering Committee.
The National League of Cities is an advocacy group for municipal governments, representing about 19,000 cities and towns that are home to more than 218 million people.
Wright's appointment to the committee will give her a bigger role in shaping the organization's policy positions, according to the city. Wright has served on other committees for the group in the past.
Locally, she serves on the state Board of Health; the Snohomish Health District board; the Marysville Fire District board; the Snohomish County Development Policy Advisory Board; the city of Marysville's Public Safety Committee and the Law Enforcement Officers' and Fire Fighters' Retirement System 1 board. Wright attained an Advanced Municipal Leadership Certification from the Association of Washington Cities in 2011.
She and her husband, Gary, own Coldwell Banker Gary Wright Realty in Marysville. Wright is a former mayor pro tem on the Marysville City Council, a former city planning commissioner and a past president of the Snohomish County Association of Cities and Towns.
