BALTIMORE (AP) — Mayors from around the country will gather in Baltimore in June for the annual meeting of The United States Conference of Mayors.

The economy, job creation, transportation, high-speed rail, homeland security, immigration and energy efficiency top this year’s agenda at the meeting set to run from June 17 to 21. The mayors will also vote on policy resolutions to forward to Congress and the administration in hopes of shaping federal legislation.

Speakers at the conference include House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Martin O’Malley, Arianna Huffington and U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Tom Donohue.

On the last day of the conference, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be inaugurated as the new president of the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more.

    A meeting of the minds for Mayors in Baltimore? That should take about five minutes as these mayors, Balto, Phila, Miami haven’t had an original idea that was good for the people of their cities in years. Most large cities Detroit included are led by Black Hispanic mayors with a declining tax base & high crime rate. Given thet they are in reality a welfare region of the state they do what most Blacks do & that is depend on the Federal government for handouts while squeezing the life out of the few remaining businesses & people left.

      not true, the statistics says that is more whites than blacks that get federal handouts, so before you make your ignorant comments, know what you are talking about. a hole

  3. Mary Jane says:

    Thank you Cris Sheriff is just like you stated A hole not all BLACKS are on welfare we are the minority fool.

    1. sheriff says:

      Mary Jane, I stand corrected not all Blacks are on welfare, just the ones living.

  4. sheriff says:

    Blacks make up 13% of the U.S. population but over 58% of the inmates in prison. I rest my case. These are the latest figures from the bureau of prisons 2009.

    @sheriff taken in 2010

    There are 14 million welfare recipients in America. Andespite the majority are not black. The truth is, about 39 percent of parents on welfare are white, 37 percent black, 18 percent Hispanic and 6 percent asian, Native American or another race go Google it.
