Carlos Amezcua and Lauren Phinney spoke to Encinitas Mayor Catherine S. Blakespear, who was in Boston Monday for the United States Conference of Mayors.
The 86th Meeting of the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) will take place Friday, June 8th through Monday, June 11th at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston. Under the leadership of USCM President Columbia, S.C. Mayor Steve Benjamin and host Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, more than 250 mayors will discuss a wide variety of priorities that contribute to the overall health of America’s cities, as well as consider and adopt the policy resolutions that guide the advocacy agenda of the organization.
During the Meeting, mayors from both sides of the aisle, from cities rural, urban and suburban, will hold sessions on a range of issues, including infrastructure, cybersecurity, school safety, immigration, automation and the economic future of cities.
The United States Conference of Mayors is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are nearly 1,400 such cities in the country today, and each city is represented in the conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.
