AAMA Names First Woman President
The African-American Mayors Association (AAMA) has recently named its first female president. New Haven, CT Mayor Toni N. Harp was sworn-in as the new AAMA president in April at its annual conference in Washington, DC.
“I’m honored my colleagues entrusted me to advance local policy priorities of AAMA members on the national stage. Urban issues are national issues because our communities are representative of the richness our country has to offer. AAMA mayors embrace that richness, connect unlikely partners, seize upon new opportunities borne of collaboration and deliver the very best services and solutions to residents every day,” says Harp.
“I’m excited to bring these stories of success at the local level to federal policymakers, whose support is essential to make our cities even stronger.”
In addition to Harp taking the helm of the AAMA, ourmayors.org, some of the other conference highlights include a session exploring the benefits and challenges of smart city technologies, focused especially on the reforms needed to ensure communities of color are full beneficiaries when these new technologies are deployed; a session on removing local barriers to technology and increasing diversity in the tech industry to promote innovation; and a session on how local governments can position themselves to maximize potential new federal investment in infrastructure.
Former U.S. transportation secretary and former mayor of Charlotte, NC, Anthony Foxx, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), and Congressional Black Caucus chair, Representative Cedric Richmond (D-LA), were also among a host of other policymakers and leaders who participated in the AAMA conference this year.
