The United States Conference of Mayors

Original writing, news writing, marketing, design

U.S. Mayor is the biweekly newspaper of The United States Conference of Mayors (USCM), distributed to member mayors and others across the country. It is a major source of information for mayors and their staff on USCM’s policy and programmatic work, and it was a great way to inform mayors of the program I ran, the national DollarWise financial education campaign, and to encourage them and their cities to participate.

I contributed both articles and advertisements to U.S. Mayor during my years as a consultant at USCM. This is a comprehensive list of the articles I wrote.
