At the U.S. Conference of Mayors Fall Leadership Meeting in Dallas on Sunday, Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx was named Chairman of the Conference's newly created Advanced Manufacturing Task Force.
With more and more American manufacturing jobs moving to metropolitan areas, Foxx will direct the task force to help mayors around the country grow their cities' manufacturing sectors and create high-paying jobs for their citizens.
Foxx previously served as Co-Chair of the Conference's Small Business and Franchising Task Force.
"We welcome Mayor Foxx as Chair of the Mayors Task Force on Advanced Manufacturing," said Philadelphia Mayor and USCM President Michael Nutter. "Mayor Foxx brings a wealth of experience to the policy discussion on job creation as we work together to make cities more efficient and create Main Street jobs."
"As the presence of advanced manufacturing in American cities continues to grow, it's critical that our city leaders are able to foster environments in which such firms can thrive," Foxx said. "This Task Force will examine how city policies on workforce development, technology transfer, infrastructure, tax reform, access to capital, and zoning can help advanced manufacturing companies grow and create jobs in America's cities. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to continue to serve my fellow mayors and their constituents across the country."
