The Latest: Mayors focus on bipartisan, local leadership
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) – U.S. mayors meeting in Florida are urging bipartisan, local leadership at a time when many are pushing back against Trump administration policies on climate change and immigration.
The U.S. Conference of Mayors opened its annual meeting Friday in Miami Beach for the leaders of cities with populations of 30,000 or more.
Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett said the negativity in political debates at the state and federal levels trickles down to city council and neighborhood meetings. Cornett said the mayors try to maintain bipartisanship and unity on issues such as community block development grants, which he warned the Trump administration not to eliminate.
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said Tropical Storm Cindy’s landfall this week along the Gulf Coast was a reminder of the importance of resilience planning for communities nationwide.
