Minneapolis Mayor-elect Betsy Hodges is among the newly-elected city mayors President Obama plans to host at the White House today to discuss how his administration can partner with the cities to bring high-paying, high-skills jobs to the nation’s urban centers.
Newly-elected mayors from New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Detroit, Charlotte and Seattle are among those scheduled to meet with Obama.
