US mayors OK plan to use only renewable energy

Miami Beach Fla. Mayors of cities with populations of 30,000 or more will discuss plans to reduce the nation's carbon Mayors From Across The US Gather In Miami For Annual Conference

Landrieu will speak Monday and is set expected to launch the mayors' agenda for the future.

Clinton warned the mayors about the need to address the epidemic, as Republicans face criticism over their plan to make large-scale changes to Medicaid, the government health insurance for the poor.

Garcetti also announced the appointment of three new co-chairs to the Climate Mayors group - Marty Walsh of Boston, Sylvester Turner of Houston and Madeline Rogero of Knoxville, Tennessee. And we never step back when duty calls.

"The country is hungry for results: and that's what Mayors serve every day to the people in their communities".

When Trump announced the USA withdrawal from the agreement, he pledged to "begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or a really entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers".

Clinton said the mayors would need to follow through on their commitment, which could prove a challenge with budgetary constraints. We don't just talk about it -or debate it. Columbia, SC Mayor Stephen Benjamin was elected USCM Vice President, and Rochester Hills, MI Mayor Bryan Barnett was elected USCM Second Vice President.

"Clean energy isn't just the right thing to do, it's the smart thing to do", said San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer.

ACE announces National Portfolio arts organisations for 2018-22
Jane Beardsworth, the Arts Council's North director said that they were delighted to support the cultural sector in Cumbria. The national portfolio will have 831 arts organisations with £409 million being invested per year.

"Mayors are builders", said Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles.

He says Homeland Security and public safety in general is an evolving issue for cities big and small. "Pittsburgh, the steel city", Clinton said. "When the federal government fumbles, city governments and city residences suffer the consequences". "We want to help get them to a place where they can. help us rebuild this great country".

USA 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 number one desire of our citizens in our cities is to feel safe - and mayors are the tip of the spear in ensuring that pledge is delivered upon", said Mayor Mike Rawlings of Dallas. The statement assumes significance after Trump's recent decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord which was met with criticism from all over the world.

Mayor Frank Ortis of Pembroke Pines, which borders the Everglades, says Floridians see that the effects of climate change are very real, especially for low-lying areas of south Florida.

The event will feature special guests such as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, U.S. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin.
