Miami Beach Overrun with U.S. Mayors Looking for Answers and a Good Time

Hundreds of U.S. mayors are meeting this weekend in Miami Beach, mostly to complain about President Trump, just one hour by car south of the president’s posh Mar-a-Lago resort.
270 mayors will mix dinners, bar-hopping, beach volleyball, and other recreation with discussion about serious topics like the president’s policies on climate change and immigration.

Mayors will also talk about how to reduce the nation’s carbon footprint, curb gun violence, likely cuts to public school funding under Trump’s policies.

And another big topic during the four day convention will be America’s infrastructure crisis, and why Washington refuses to address it.

The U.S. Conference of Mayors is made up of 270 mayors from cities with populations of more than 30,000.

The mayors will vote Monday on policy resolutions to send to federal lawmakers in Washington.
