Kilpatrick Appointed Co-Chair of Mayoral Task Force

Among the 1,139 members of the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM), Detroit's Kwame Kilpatrick was recently appointed Co-Chair of the Task Force on Poverty, Work and Opportunity.

Kilpatrick joins chair Antonio Villaraigosa, Mayor of Los Angeles, and four other mayoral co-chairs on the task force, which is charged with developing a new policy agenda on poverty. The six-member group will present the agenda at the USCM Winter meeting in January 2007.

In June 2006, Mayor Kilpatrick was chosen as one of the USCM's 13 Trustees.
In addition to this role and his appointment to the Poverty, Work and Opportunity Task Force, Kilpatrick serves as co-chair of the USCM Cities and Borders Task Force and chair of the Council for the New American City Task Force.

Created in 1932 on the eve of Franklin D. Roosevelt's Presidential Inauguration, the United States Conference of Mayors is the official non-partisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more.

Dearborn-Mayor Michael Guido is the current President of the USCM.
