While not the official Mayor of Minneapolis just yet, Betsy Hodges will get her first taste of the political major leagues while meeting with President Obama Friday.
WASHINGTON D.C. - President Obama will meet Friday with a group of mayors and mayors-elect to discuss job creation policies.
The group will discuss "ways in which the Obama administration can serve as an active partner on job creation and ensuring middle-class families have a pathway to opportunity," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.
It sounds like most if not all of the president's guests will be political supporters.
Carney said, "Mayors understand that smart investments in things like American manufacturing and infrastructure help provide good jobs for middle-class families while providing a foundation for long-term economic success."
The roster of mayors and mayors-elect include those from New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Seattle.
