Metro mayors to talk about their urban poor

The mayors of North Carolina’s 27 largest cities are in Charlotte Friday to talk about economic development and poverty. They may talk about much more at this gathering of the N.C. Metropolitan Mayors Coalition, a group that has been getting together officially since 2001 to strategize on tackling interests common to N.C. municipalities with populations over 30,000. But those two topics, closely linked and of pressing concern, will likely get the lion’s share of attention.
