PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island League of Cities and Towns has hired a new executive director.

Brian Daniels will succeed longtime Executive Director Daniel Beardsley, who is retiring on Dec. 31 after 42 years working for the lobbying group, including 27 years as its director.

The organization represents the interests of the state’s 39 municipalities at the State House.

Daniels has been working as a deputy budget officer for the state Office of Management and Budget. He previously worked as a policy aide to Gov. Lincoln Chafee and Democratic U.S. Rep. James Langevin and as a research consultant for the Rhode Island Public Expenditure Council.

The Warwick native has a bachelor’s degree from Duke University and a master’s in business from the Yale School of Management.
