      Boca Mayor Scott Singer Joins Non-Partisan

      Delegation Of Mayors at White House Meetings

      By Nils A. Shapiro, Editor, Boca Club News
         On January 20th, Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer joined nearly two hundred mayors from
      across the nation for an address at the White House by President Biden on the Bipartisan
      Infrastructure Law. Singer was part of a delegation from the United States Conference of
      Mayors following their winter meeting in Washington, D.C. Singer was able to greet President
      Biden from his second-row seat and, while at the White House, met with Cabinet and Biden
      Administration officials to discuss funding programs for cities and small businesses.
         The United States Conference of Mayors is the official non-partisan organization of cities
      with populations of 30,000 or more. Since 2021, Singer has served as one of the nation’s
      50 mayors on the Conference’s Leadership team as a member of its Advisory Board. The
      Conference’s winter meeting held dozens of sessions at which mayors, Administration and
      Congressional leaders, and business and industry representatives exchanged ideas on nearly
      two dozen topics. Said Singer, “The meetings of the U.S. Conference of Mayors provide great
      information on strategies to address common problems, like growing main-street businesses,
      housing affordability, infrastructure and mental health. I look forward to bringing more of
      the best practices back to Boca Raton.”
