STAMFORD, CT - Stamford Mayor David Martin will attend the 82nd Winter Meeting of The U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington D.C beginning on Wednesday, January 22. 280 mayors from across the country are expected to be present, including 11 from Connecticut. The trip to Washington, D.C. will be Martin’s first since taking office last month.

“I am looking forward to representing Stamford, exchanging best practices with mayors from across the country, and working to bring federal dollars back to Stamford,” Martin said Tuesday.

While in Washington, the Mayor will join discussions on several policy issues including job creation, education, transportation and sustainability, and hear from a number of key government officials. A complete list of speakers is available on the U.S. Conference of Mayors website. On Thursday, January 23, the mayors will attend a series of afternoon policy discussions at the White House with Cabinet Secretaries, followed by remarks from President Barack Obama. In addition there will be a broad range of topics presented throughout the conference.

In advance of the conference, the Mayor worked with the Ferguson Group, Stamford’s federal lobbyists, to secure additional meetings with officials in the Department of Transportation, FEMA, EPA, and other federal agencies, to discuss Stamford’s priorities and work to secure federal funding.

“It is highly advantageous for the Mayor to visit Washington and meet directly with federal agencies responsible for granting federal dollars to Stamford,” said Michael Pollard, Mayor Martin’s Chief of Staff. “Stamford competes for federal dollars with municipalities from across the country and the Mayor’s advocacy is an important ingredient for success.”

Martin will return to Stamford on Friday afternoon. Press should contact Tom Dec at 203-977-5115 with any interview request during the duration of the conference.
