Country's Mayors Gather In Miami To Advocate For Cities

ALLEN: Last month, after President Trump announced his plan to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, Levine and other members of the U.S. Conference of Mayors protested.

"Local government is the most functional, and cities are where people see that action affecting their daily lives", Whaley said.

"By enacting zero-emissions port and bus programs, integrating green technology into city design, and investing in multi-modal transportation, we've built a robust economy while also reducing our emissions, proving that you don't to choose between the economy and the environment", said Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Think Washington, D.C., and your statehouse are irredeemable and un... "Mayors, Democratic, Republican and Independent, are ready to follow Mitch Landrieu's bold leadership at this critical moment in American cities and defining moment in American history".

A bipartisan group of mayors from across the country has unanimously backed an ambitious commitment for USA cities to run entirely on renewable sources such as wind and solar in two decades. "I am therefore very happy Mayor Levine was gracious enough to extend an invitation to me to share the proposal in detail, highlighting how mutually beneficial it will be", said Minister Bartlett.

More than 250 US mayors are meeting in Florida at a time when many cities are pushing back against Trump administration policies on climate change and immigration.

"Local leaders around the world stand together with you, redoubling our commitment to bold action on climate change, working with business leaders and citizens worldwide", the mayors said in their statement, urging ordinary citizens to sign a petition to back their cause.

Garcia was announced Friday as the large city victor in the 2017 Mayors' Climate Protection Awards for the Clear Air Action Plan, meant to reduce port-related air pollution and health risks at the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles while allowing port development, job creation and economic activity to continue. "Congress and the Trump administration should listen to these mayors, as they reflect the needs and hopes of their constituents, not the greed of corporate donors", said Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK, whose group helped pass the resolution from Ithaca, NY that was adopted by the conference.

The three resolutions, numbers 59, 60 and 79, can be found here and here.

New Orleans is ahead of many cities its size in overhauling aging water and sewer infrastructure, but that came with considerable federal aid after Hurricane Katrina. There are almost 1,400 such cities in the country today, and each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.
