Mayor Landrieu attends U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter Leadership Meeting in Washington, D.C.

February 28, 2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA—Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu traveled to Washington, D.C., for the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) Winter Leadership Meeting. The meeting will focus on a number of national issues impacting local government, including sequestration cuts, gun safety and immigration reform.  

The USCM is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are 1,204 such cities in the country today. Each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.

Mayor Landrieu will be among a delegation of bipartisan mayors from across the country who will meet with Senate and Congressional leaders tomorrow, Friday, March 1, to express the organization’s strong opposition to sequestration cuts.

Mayors will meet with lawmakers to explain the devastating impact that sequestration cuts would have on local communities and their residents. Local leaders will also gather during the two-day meeting to discuss the long overdue need for comprehensive immigration reform and gun safety.

Mayor Landrieu is the chair of the organization’s Tourism, Arts, Parks, Entertainment and Sports (TAPES) committee.

Mayor Landrieu will return to New Orleans on Friday, March 1, 2013.
