The US Conference of Mayors is jumping into the anti-war effort
The US Conference of Mayors is jumping into the anti-war effort. Tomorrow – the conference will introduce a resolution to call for a quicker end to US foreign wars around the world. If it passes – it will be the first anti-war resolution passed by the Conference of Mayors since Vietnam.
Even though the mayors have no power over the funding of these wars like lawmakers in Congress do – mayors around the country see first-hand the effects of this war – in particular the costs – as more and more cities in America are going broke while hundreds of billions are spent dropping bombs in the Middle East.
