Mayors often have a lot of work to do, but if they don’t know something, it might be because it hasn’t been brought to their attention. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Philadephia Mayor Michael Nutter visited “NewsOne Now” to discuss why it’s important to address city issues, such as how to fix roads and buildings to improve schools, in forums.

“We have to get things done,” said Blake. “We can’t put it off and they’ve seen that happen. They’re coming to us. We’ve had very productive meetings, talking about the need for more infrastructure, talking about the need to continue to be able to use the tools that we have with bond financing and CDBG funds. We make things happen on the ground. They know if [you want to] see progress, they have to come to where progress is being made and that is with mayors.”

“How do we fix our roads and our bridges? How do we put our people to work?” asked Nutter. “You look at education, Race to the Top — 46 stats across the United States of America change their educational standards as a result of…the education that we’re talking about. We fought the fight in many, many occasions to keep in place community block run program. What is that all about? That’s about affordable housing. That’s about senior citizens. That’s about investments right in the neighborhood and where people work and you can leverage those dollars through private sectors.”
