America's Mayors Are in Sync: Congress Must Work on a Bipartisan Basis to put America Back on Track

Mayor Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, who is President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, says that for residents of his city, nothing is more important than creating jobs


Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa of Los Angeles, California says that the residents of his city are united in their message to him, and to elected officials in Washington: "Job #1 is to create the jobs they need going into the future."

And the American Jobs Act is a step in that direction. "America’s mayors are in sync with the President and his call to work on a bipartisan basis to put America back on track," according to Villaraigosa, who is President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
