Mayor Johnson to attend U.S. Conference of Mayors annual meeting in Reno
Mayor Johnson serves on the advisory board for the conference.
RENO, Nevada — Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson is attending the 90th Annual Meeting of U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) this weekend.
USCM is a nonpartisan organization that represents more than 1,400 cities that have populations of 30,000 people or more. Each city is represented in the conference by its chief elected official, the mayor. The mayors collectively work through the conference’s standing committees to adopt policy resolutions on national issues.
Mayor Johnson serves on USCM Advisory Board, which makes policy and program recommendations to the conference, and as Vice Chair for Aviation on the Transportation and Communications Standing Committee.
Mayor Johnson has proposed three resolutions that will be considered at the annual meeting:
- Support for a permanent extension of the New Markets Tax Credit
- Support for the City & State Diplomacy Act
- Support for Revitalizing Downtowns Act
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the gathering in Reno will be Mayor Johnson’s first in-person USCM meeting since early 2020.
“This is a pivotal time for our nation, and mayors are on the front lines of the most pressing matters, such as public safety, workforce development, and economic revitalization,” Mayor Johnson said. “I am excited to work with my fellow mayors in person again as we discuss critical issues that affect our communities in Dallas.”
