Faulconer, who will leave office after the November election, made clear in his 2020 State of the City Address on Jan. 15 that creating affordable housing and helping keep people off the street were his biggest priorities in his final term.
During the three-day conference in the nation’s capital, Faulconer will highlight what his office, the City Council and city employees have done to tackle the homelessness crisis in the city.
He will also lead a forum on trade and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
This afternoon’s best practices forums show how mayors are taking on the challenges facing our communities. We need Washington to stand with mayors in addressing important priorities like supporting small businesses and fixing our broken immigration system. #MayorsDC20 pic.twitter.com/l7OKK7t5Bw
