Mayor brings back ideas from US Conference of Mayors

Mayor brings back ideas from US Conference of Mayors

Some local leaders converged on Dallas, Texas, this weekend for the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski and Easton Mayor Sal Panto joined dozens of mayors from across the country to discuss a number of topics, including climate change, net neutrality and community development.

Pawlowski said mayors are playing an ever-increasing role in education, and this weekend's discussions included re-engagement and anti-bullying initiatives.

"Our cities and our districts are interconnected," Pawlowski said. "If you want folks to move back into the urban core, you have to have good schools, so our fates are intertwined."

Pawlowski said more than 100 resolutions were passed at the conference and he has a number of ideas he would like to incorporate into Allentown over the next year.
