    LUNCHEON SPEECH MONDAY, AUGUST 4th, 2008



    WASHINGTON, Aug. 1 /EMWNews/ -- U.S. Conference of Mayors

President Miami Mayor Manny Diaz will address the National Press Club in

Washington, D.C. on Monday, August 4th to challenge the next Presidential

Administration to invest in solutions to the growing problems that threaten

America's cities and metropolitan areas -- the economic engines of the

nation, accounting for 86 percent of the Gross Domestic Product.



    Mayor Diaz, the newly-elected President of the mayors' organization

believes, "National problems demand national investments."



    Diaz will also highlight the launch of a series of Mayors '08 Action

Forums, a national effort in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago

and Miami, where mayors will meet in each location to forge an action

agenda for cities to be presented to the next President of the United

States during the critical first 100 days of the new administration. Diaz

has referred to this national effort as the "third campaign" of the

political season.



    Beginning in Philadelphia on August 6 and ending in Miami on October 2,

the Action Forums will focus on areas that mayors believe are in need of

significant national investment:



    Philadelphia - Crime & Public Safety (August 6)



    New York - Infrastructure (August 14)



    Los Angeles - Poverty (September)



    Chicago - Arts (TBD)



    Miami - Environment (October 2)
