According to this website: https://www.statista.com/statistics/241695/number-of-us-cities-towns-villages-by-population-size/
there were 19,505 communities in the United States in 2015.
16,470 have a population under 10,000. That leaves 3,035 larger cities.
The US Conference of Mayors claims to represent 1,409 communities. Since tiny cities don’t attend, 1409 of 3035 is only 46.4%. http://mayorsagenda.com/about-us/
The next meeting is June 8th – June 11th. I know Tari Renner is planning to attend. Chris Koos has gone in the past, so he most likely is attending too.

Agenda items are listed at the top.
There is a reason only 46.4% of mayors across the country are members. The US Conference of Mayors believes government creates prosperity through equality, diversity, and big big government programs. (socialism)
I can’t wait for Tari and Chris to return with more Utopian plans.
Click around and tell me what you think.
This page claims more than 250 mayors will attend, way below the 1409 members: https://www.usmayors.org/2018/05/23/nations-mayors-to-convene-in-boston-for-u-s-conference-of-mayors-annual-meeting/
Don’t forget, you are paying the cost. This time it takes place in Boston.
