Washington, DC – Today, Mike Bloomberg, former Mayor of New York City and presidential candidate, announced his commitment to the Leading Together 2020 Cities Agenda. Leading Together is the formative, nonpartisan platform from the National League of Cities that seeks to address the issues that keep America’s residents and local elected leaders up at night.
“Presidential candidates must join local elected leaders in lifting up America’s political and policy discourse, building consensus, and forging nonpartisan solutions,” said Joe Buscaino, President Pro Tempore, Los Angeles City Council and President, National League of Cities. “Mayor Bloomberg is the latest candidate to sign on to the 2020 Cities Agenda, recognizing the importance of forging a strong federal-local partnership to build a brighter future for all communities.”
The Cities Agenda is composed of four critical issues that we can make the greatest impact on as a united nation, including Building Sustainable Infrastructure, Creating a Skilled Workforce, Ending Housing Instability and Homelessness, and Reducing Gun Violence.
