Mayor Muoio in DC for Mayor’s Conference

010516+Post+Centennial014Mayor Jeri Muoio won’t be slathering on the Hawaiian Tropic this week. She’s in cold, rainy Washington, D.C. for the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, looking for fresh ideas that might make sense for West Palm Beach.

She attended a presentation on summer jobs programs for youths, for starters.

She also was scheduled to attend a presentation on how cities might tap the $4 billion that Volkswagen is putting into a fund for sustainability programs, as part of its settlement of its emissions test-rigging case.

The mayor also attended a meeting of an education task force she’s on, a session on using block grants for housing and development, and a presentation on a program Wells Fargo is starting to promote home ownership for Hispanics.

She missed a talk by Vice President-elect Pence. He was more than 20 minutes late and she had other obligations.

She’ll be back in town in time to attend the Women’s March in West Palm Beach on Jan. 21.
