Adam McFadden, a member of Rochester City Council, has been elected president of the National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials, a unit of the National League of Cities representing African-American interests.

McFadden was elected 2014 president Saturday at the League of Cities’ Congress of Cities and Exposition in Seattle.

McFadden, who represents the city’s South District, is the senior member of City Council. He has lived in the 19th Ward for 27 years. He is executive director of Quad A For Kids, a non-profit agency that addresses poverty among city children.

The National Black Caucus was created in 1970 to increase African-American participation on League of Cities steering and policy committees.
