Hello All,

I have received confirmation from Newark (Jarrad Toussant, Sr Education Advisor), LA (Joan Sullivan,
Deputy Mayor of Education) and Memphis (Bobby White, Chief of Staff) that they will be attending the
call tomorrow. I have directed them to email Adam as well.

With Mayor Johnson, that puts us at 19 mayors. I also feel confident that we will have at least 3-5 more
from my phone calls with the following mayors offices:
Cleveland
Seattle
Oklahoma City
Denver
Hartford
Tulsa
Rochester
Pembroke Pines
Nashville
Boston

I also resent the invitation plus a reminder message to the remaining mayors office assistants. A few
more should come from that.

Looking forward to tomorrows call!

Best,
Mariah

Some additional detail on the half of funds going to States that would be distributed to support projects
most needed:

States would make the determination of what projects are most needed using objective criteria, such as
the fiscal capacity of districts, the percentage of children who are from low-income families, and the
needs of districts for assistance. The needs of districts for assistance might entail factors such as the
condition of their school facilities. The states criteria would have to be included in their application
to the Department.

HI Mariah. To ensure that public schools in the most disrepair will be able to make necessary
enhancements, almost 40% of the funds will be directed toward the 100 largest high-need districts.
Each of the 100 districts with the largest numbers of children living in poverty would receive a formula
amount proportionate to its Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I, Part A allocation

within 60 days of enactment. The remaining roughly 60% will be awarded to states based on their Title
I shares. States would direct half the funding to districts on a formula basis and half through a TBD
application process in the most high-need districts, with a priority for rural districts.

Hi Stephanie and Adam,

I did receive the invitation this morning, thanks again for sending it out. Ill forward the invitation to
the mayors you listed.

Thanks for sending updated TPs our way. I still had a question about how schools need will be
determined (based on the clause in the AJA that the $25B pledged to modernize public schools will go
to schools most in need). Adam, maybe you could help us out with this?

Safe travels, Stephanie.

needs of districts for assistance. The needs of districts for assistance might entail factors such as the
condition of their school facilities. The state?s criteria would have to be included in their application to
the Department.

HI Mariah. To ensure that public schools in the most disrepair will be able to make necessary
enhancements, almost 40% of the funds will be directed toward the 100 largest high-need districts.
Each of the 100 districts with the largest numbers of children living in poverty would receive a formula
amount proportionate to its Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I, Part A allocation
within 60 days of enactment. The remaining roughly 60% will be awarded to states based on their Title
I shares. States would direct half the funding to districts on a formula basis and half through a TBD

application process in the most high-need districts, with a priority for rural districts.

Hi Stephanie and Adam,

I did receive the invitation this morning, thanks again for sending it out. I?ll forward the invitation to
the mayors you listed.

Thanks for sending updated TPs our way. I still had a question about how schools? ?need? will be
determined (based on the clause in the AJA that the $25B pledged to modernize public schools will go
to schools most in need). Adam, maybe you could help us out with this?

Safe travels, Stephanie.

Best,
Mariah

HI Mariah. To ensure that public schools in the most disrepair will be able to make necessary
enhancements, almost 40% of the funds will be directed toward the 100 largest high-need districts.
Each of the 100 districts with the largest numbers of children living in poverty would receive a
formula amount proportionate to its Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I, Part A
allocation within 60 days of enactment. The remaining roughly 60% will be awarded to states based
on their Title I shares. States would direct half the funding to districts on a formula basis and half
through a TBD application process in the most high-need districts, with a priority for rural districts.

Some additional detail on the half of funds going to States that would be distributed to support projects most
needed:

States would make the determination of what projects are most needed using objective criteria, such as the
fiscal capacity of districts, the percentage of children who are from low-income families, and the needs of
districts for assistance. The needs of districts for assistance might entail factors such as the condition of their
school facilities. The states criteria would have to be included in their application to the Department.

Deputy Mayor of Education) and Memphis (Bobby White, Chief of Staff) that they will be attending the

Cleveland
Seattle

Oklahoma City
Denver
Hartford
Tulsa
Rochester
Pembroke Pines
Nashville
Boston

I also resent the invitation plus a reminder message to the remaining mayors office assistants. A few
more should come from that.

Looking forward to tomorrows call!

Some additional detail on the half of funds going to States that would be distributed to
support projects most needed:

States would make the determination of what projects are most needed using
objective criteria, such as the fiscal capacity of districts, the percentage of children
who are from low-income families, and the needs of districts for assistance. The
needs of districts for assistance might entail factors such as the condition of their
school facilities. The states criteria would have to be included in their application to
the Department.

HI Mariah. To ensure that public schools in the most disrepair will be able to make
necessary enhancements, almost 40% of the funds will be directed toward the 100
largest high-need districts. Each of the 100 districts with the largest numbers of
children living in poverty would receive a formula amount proportionate to its
Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I, Part A allocation within
60 days of enactment. The remaining roughly 60% will be awarded to states based
on their Title I shares. States would direct half the funding to districts on a formula
basis and half through a TBD application process in the most high-need districts, with
a priority for rural districts.

Hi Stephanie and Adam,

I did receive the invitation this morning, thanks again for sending it out. Ill forward
the invitation to the mayors you listed.

Thanks for sending updated TPs our way. I still had a question about how schools
need will be determined (based on the clause in the AJA that the $25B pledged to
modernize public schools will go to schools most in need). Adam, maybe you could
help us out with this?

Safe travels, Stephanie.

Wynona,

Regretfully the Mayor will be unable to attend the Meeting/Dinner with President Obama on March
29, 2012 due to a scheduling conflict. I actually called and left you a voicemail yesterday but
perhaps that was not received.

Thank you again for the invitation.

Best,

Hi Beverly!

I just spoke to our office, and you are confirmed to bring 20 people from 100 Black Men to next
Friday's Education session at the National Conference of Black Mayors. We ask that you commit to fill
these spots, as we will hold them for you (but I know that won't be an issue for you!)

One thing to note - though Mayor Johnson would like you and other faith / civil rights leaders to attend,
Q&A will prioritize Mayors in attendance, since the session was originally targeted towards Black
Mayors.

Thank you Beverly - please let me know if you need any additional information. I will send an email
with logistical details prior to the event. I will be your POC for this event - looking forward to seeing you
again in Atlanta.

Thanks,
Meera

Hi all,
I'm sure this is not on the top of your list, but I need to discuss the follow up to ACA
Outreach Initiative with the team. I would like to:
1. Include update and reminder on your Agenda in Birmingham (5min or less)
2. Continue to make calls for commitment forms ( ongoing)
3. Send an update email on Sept 12 to all
4. Schedule the next call (just NCBM) for late September or early October. (Mayor
would like to do late Sept. I am out of office the last two weeks and his schedule is
packed)
Perhaps we can discuss, particularly #1and #4, on Tuesday. This should be a piece
of cake compared to what you are dealing with. :) This might be a good handoff to
new ED. :):)
Get ready to enjoy your weekend.

I'm good following up with Kellyn directly on the toolkit contents.


We should really push them to write the letter - tell them Mayor Johnson wants
them to do so. They're backing out of doing the heavy lifting already. Did you see
Kasia's response for data? She basically said here's a link feel free to play around
with the data for yourself.
We need to make it clear that if MKJ is going to make this an NCBM initiative, we
will need their support.

Cassandra,

Thanks for a great call on Monday. We are incredibly appreciative of the Mayor?s
enthusiasm for the ACA.

The toolkit is moving along and we hope to be ready to release next week. Per
our discussion, below are some bullets that the Mayor can use in writing his cover
letter to accompany the packet. Please feel free to modify, re-word and put into
the Mayor?s own voice, these are just ideas.

Let us know if you need anything else and we will be in touch with an update on
timing for a call with NCBM members and the completed toolkit shortly.

? From October 1 through March 31, millions of Americans will have access to
sign up for lost-cost and subsidized access to affordable health insurance through
the Health Insurance Marketplaces created through the Affordable Care Act
? Elected officials play a unique role as trusted messengers in educating
constituents about the choices they will have and the opportunity to create
healthier communities
?

Some ways elected officials can get involved in this important effort include
o Educating themselves and their staff about the options that will be
available in the Health Insurance Marketplaces
o Providing access to printed materials and computer portals at city
hall or in other government offices & adding information to city
websites
o Hosting an information session (or multiple sessions) about the
Health Insurance Marketplace before October 1
o Hosting enrollment sessions where constituents can sign up in the
Marketplace between October 1 and March 31.

Some additional detail on the half of funds going to States that would be distributed to
support projects most needed:

States would make the determination of what projects are most needed using objective
criteria, such as the fiscal capacity of districts, the percentage of children who are from
low-income families, and the needs of districts for assistance. The needs of districts for
assistance might entail factors such as the condition of their school facilities. The
state?s criteria would have to be included in their application to the Department.

HI Mariah. To ensure that public schools in the most disrepair will be able to make
necessary enhancements, almost 40% of the funds will be directed toward the 100
largest high-need districts. Each of the 100 districts with the largest numbers of
children living in poverty would receive a formula amount proportionate to its
Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title I, Part A allocation within
60 days of enactment. The remaining roughly 60% will be awarded to states based on
their Title I shares. States would direct half the funding to districts on a formula basis
and half through a TBD application process in the most high-need districts, with a
priority for rural districts.

Hi Ladies,

I left this person a message so there may not be any follow up unless you have
additional information or want to speak with him regarding this matter.

Henry Hurt
Hurt Electric
Wisconsin Area (suburb of Milwaukee)
262-252-0500 x115

He wanted to know if we knew of Partner America who is trying to do business in


his area and listing that they are doing business with the Conference of Mayors.
Apparently the person is dropping the Mayor?s name and/ or the organization.

In my voice mail message I let him know that I was not aware of any relationship
with Partner America. I also asked if they were doing business with the USCM or

NCBM. I asked him to email me any additional information he may have or call
the USCM directly if that was the organization being referenced.

Please feel free to follow up if you have additional information.

great, but maybe we could just do a Monday, Wednesday, Friday distribution so
we don't inundate them - we may get an update from the court hearing, so we
don't want too many things going out.

Maybe Nick and Corina could craft some short twitter messages and facebook
posts to provide our Mayors? Here's a link to some ACA social media

Hi All,

It looks like the White House probably wants something to happen next week. I
have reached out to the CA group however I think the WH is more interested in
what we are doing with NCBM since they represent a tough market place. What
do you think about us doing this and sending out a notice by Friday:

Dec 16-23: NCBM ?Reachout and Touch? Week for ACA

We could ask all NCBM to


? Connect with a partner to help get the word out
? Email a success story with us and maybe place on their website
? Tweet, place on facebook, send out email to constituents
? Send out a Press Release

We would send out an email message each morning M-F as a reminded and
highlight a story.

Stories such as:

Leonard, 56 years old, showed up 30 min early at Central Library


and was the first to get served. His insurance had been cancelled
and he has high blood pressure. He really needs his medicine. He
came with all his paperwork and qualified for insurance for
$1/month.
Lady A discontinued her insurance 2 years ago because it was too
expensive. She was able to enroll in a better plan for one third the
cost of her previous plan.
Lady B is on Social Security Assistance and travels from
Sacramento to Fresno to receive healthcare. She currently pays
$150 per month. With Covered CA she will only pay $72 per month
and will be able to access services in Sacramento. She is excited!!!
Family of 5 seeking healthcare. Wife has healthcare, kids have
Medi-Cal, husband has no health insurance. They were seeking
one policy that covers the entire family. Result ??
Taylor and Tyler are 20 year old twins in college with no healthcare.
They are very active young adults. They signed up at the Church on Enrollment
Day.

Nick and Corina could manage as their last project. What do you think? I am
open. What we need Elected Officials to do is to help get the word out.

Thanks Cassandra ? this call is intended for key staff in top markets about 20
people, so would ask that you not send out to NCBM.

The call with Valerie Jarrett is still on hold until we are able to reschedule when
she returns from South Africa. Thanks for your help and understanding.

Hi Kellyn,

Thanks. I plan to join in. Have you notified the NCBM who have been
participating or shall I? And shall I assume unless otherwise indicated that it is
okay to invite NCBM to these calls? Lastly I assume the call with Valerie Jarred in
which Mayor Johnson was asked to present is still on hold? Thanks for your

and will be able to access services in Sacramento. She is excited!!!

Family of 5 seeking healthcare. Wife has healthcare, kids have


Medi-Cal, husband has no health insurance. They were seeking
one policy that covers the entire family. Result ??
Taylor and Tyler are 20 year old twins in college with no healthcare.
They are very active young adults. They signed up at the Church on Enrollment
Day.

Nick and Corina could manage as their last project. What do you think? I am
open. What we need Elected Officials to do is to help get the word out.

Thanks Cassandra ? this call is intended for key staff in top markets about 20
people, so would ask that you not send out to NCBM.

The call with Valerie Jarrett is still on hold until we are able to reschedule when
she returns from South Africa. Thanks for your help and understanding.

Hi Kellyn,

Thanks. I plan to join in. Have you notified the NCBM who have been
participating or shall I? And shall I assume unless otherwise indicated that it is
okay to invite NCBM to these calls? Lastly I assume the call with Valerie Jarred in
which Mayor Johnson was asked to present is still on hold? Thanks for your

We should definitely get the NCBM Mayors involved. The personal stories are great, but
maybe we could just do a Monday, Wednesday, Friday distribution so we don't inundate
them - we may get an update from the court hearing, so we don't want too many things going
out.
Maybe Nick and Corina could craft some short twitter messages and facebook posts to
provide our Mayors? Here's a link to some ACA social media

Hi All,
It looks like the White House probably wants something to happen next week. I have reached
out to the CA group however I think the WH is more interested in what we are doing with
NCBM since they represent a tough market place. What do you think about us doing this and
sending out a notice by Friday:
Dec 16-23: NCBM Reachout and Touch Week for ACA
We could ask all NCBM to

Connect with a partner to help get the word out

Email a success story with us and maybe place on their website

Tweet, place on facebook, send out email to constituents

Send out a Press Release

We would send out an email message each morning M-F as a reminded and highlight a
story.
Stories such as:
Leonard, 56 years old, showed up 30 min early at Central Library and was the first to
get served. His insurance had been cancelled and he has high blood pressure. He
really needs his medicine. He came with all his paperwork and qualified for insurance
for $1/month.
Lady A discontinued her insurance 2 years ago because it was too expensive. She was
able to enroll in a better plan for one third the cost of her previous plan.
Lady B is on Social Security Assistance and travels from Sacramento to Fresno to
receive healthcare. She currently pays $150 per month. With Covered CA she will
only pay $72 per month and will be able to access services in Sacramento. She is
excited!!!

The municipality with the highest number of points will be designated as the ?
Healthiest Hometown in Mississippi? and receive a $50,000 grant to further their
health and wellness efforts. A town of any size may receive this designation.
A municipality from each of these three categories will receive a designation as a ?
Healthy Hometown,? along with a $25,000 grant from the Blue Cross & Blue Shield
of Mississippi Foundation:
Large Town: 15,000 or more residents
Medium Town: 5,001 ? 14,999 residents
Small Town: Fewer than 5,000 residents
Winning hometowns will be announced at the Mississippi Municipal League Annual
Conference, scheduled for July 15 ? July 17, 2013, in Biloxi, Mississippi. At this
conference, we will also announce the names of the Healthy Hometown judges,
followed by publication of the judges? names and brief bios on our website.

Hi Mayor Goodall,

Thanks for the information. We do plan to sign up for the webinar. As Mayor Johnson mentioned we
are not able to be in DC. We are definitely committed to the Let's Move Initiative and glad to hear we
are with good company, Forest Heights. As you can imagine we have had our hands full over the past
few weeks and since we last spoke. It becomes clearer and clearer as to what is the right thing to do.
In addition we have spoken to a few other people regarding the HUD grant. It is definitely on our list
of items to follow up on. Next week in a critical week in our earlyefforts to restore NCBM to a
reputable and "go to" organization. I will also email you, under separate cover, a specific email update.
Have a safe July 4th celebration.

Re: FW: Natiional Conference of Black Mayors

Ben,
What is the normal protocol for responding to press inquiries? Does the Mayor
review these? We can have the NCBM PR team respond. I will send it to them.
The answers are:
1) Ms. Williams was terminated by the Board in Director's in September.
2) While we were aware of some preliminary discussion Vanessa had with
Bermuda, since her termination the current board has not engaged in any dialogues
and any planning is unauthorized because she was terminated.

Good afternoon Ben,
My name is Gareth Finighan and I?m a reporter with The Royal Gazette newspaper in
Bermuda.
I?m writing to put some questions to Mayor Johnson in his capacity as president of the

My questions are;
1) Is Vanessa Williams still executive director of the NCBM?
2) Is Major Johnson aware of plans for the NCBM to host a conference in Bermuda in
October of this year?
I?d very much appreciate it if the mayor could get back to me on these Ben.

Many thanks,

I'd send MKJ a brief email telling him about the request and that you are forwarding to the PR team to
handle.
Once you give me the ok I can direct the reporter to the NCBM PR team.

I was also able to decipher some of the phone numbers from the NCBM database we

The White House is asking for the list and some other issues. Before I call them
back I would like to have that info. Please forward what you have and perhaps
Nick can complete it. Then Nick and I can call the White House later today if that

Adrianne,
Thanks for sending this. Not sure why I didn't see it earlier. Mariah, this is problematic
because while they've suggested the weekend we requested, they've also scheduled the retreat
for the entire three days (9/21-9/23) which is not what the Mayor asked of them. That said, I
think we request that weekend and inform Vanessa that the Mayor will not be able to attend
the session on Friday dealing with operations and finance, but will be able to attend the
weekend session related to the Bylaws and Goals for 2012 and 2013.
Thoughts?

Thanks for sending this. Not sure why I didn't see it earlier. Mariah, this is problematic
because while they've suggested the weekend we requested, they've also scheduled the retreat
for the entire three days (9/21-9/23) which is not what the Mayor asked of them. That said, I
think we request that weekend and inform Vanessa that the Mayor will not be able to attend
the session on Friday dealing with operations and finance, but will be able to attend the
weekend session related to the Bylaws and Goals for 2012 and 2013.
Thoughts?

It would be great if they could choose the Sept date and start a little bit later on Sept 21

We may invite a few mayors from the BOD to attend the summit or a portion of it

Looks great. I'm putting a few tweaks to the intro paragraph. The only other thing
I would do is make sure the text size/ font / color is the same. Each section came
up different on my screen. I'd also remove Mayor's name from the bottom, so that
we don't need to have him review it. It can just come from NCBM office.
Thanks all!

Dear NCBM Mayors,


It is important that we continue to answer the call from the White House and do our part in getting
our citizens enrolled in the health plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Next week,
December 16th-23rd, will beNCBM ?Reach Out and Touch? Week for ACA.
Many of our constituentsare just one diagnosis or accident away from a health crisis that can tear a
family apart. If people are enrolled by December 23 rd they will receive health insurance effective
January 1, 2014. Let?s make a strong push next week to get our uninsured signed up for a health
plan in the Healthcare Marketplace (healthcare.gov). It would be a great Holiday Gift.
We are asking all NCBM members to:

Let's not do this kind of back-and-forth with multiple people. I know SH handles
the task force and SM black mayors, but when we are coordinating with people at
this level of government, we need to streamline the process on our end and
provide them one POC who will then coordinate the necessary parties on our end.

I appreciate the follow-up, Stephanie, and apologize for the delay in my response.
Stacey and I talked this morning, and we agree on using the time on the Secretary?s
schedule for Thursday, April 4, from 3:30 to 4:30 PM to talk with the Education Task
Force, as well as invited members of the Black Mayors? Coalition of Education Reform.
The focus of the call would be our second term priorities (early learning, K-12
investments, CTE, and college cost and completion).

We might also explore the possibility of having a few members of Black Mayors?
Coalition join early or stay later to briefly discuss the Secretary?s remarks at NCBM, if
we are able to confirm his participation (which is still being considered by Scheduling).

Meanwhile, I am still trying to connect with Kim. She has been very busy! Yesterday,
the White House Champions of Change series (http://www.whitehouse.gov/champions)
honored 10 Americans for their work in promoting educational excellence for AfricanAmericans in their communities, as well as announced David Johns as the first Executive
Director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African-Americans
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weWASsIlF_I).

Here are some possible dates/times for a phone call. Let me know if any of them work
on your end. Then, I?ll confirm with Kim.

? Thursday, February 28, at 4 PM ET/1 PM PT


? Friday, March 1, between 11 AM and 2 PM ET/8 AM and 11 AM PT
? Tuesday, March 5, between 11 AM and 1 PM ET/8 AM and 10 AM PT

Thanks again,
Adam

Hi Adam,

I just wanted to check in on our last exchange.Have you had the opportunity to touch
base with your Stacey on how best to use the time reserved on Secretary Duncan?s
calendar on April 4th between 3:30- 4:30 PM EST? Shannon and I spoke with Mayor
Johnson, and he suggested using the time for the Education Task Force but to also invite
the black mayors that will likely be participating in the Black Mayors? Coalition on
Education Reform. He is also open to your suggestion. We are happy to set up a call to
discuss next steps.

Also, we would still love to connect with Kim Watkins-Foote in the upcoming weeks.
As always, please let us know if we can be helpful to you in anyway.

Many Thanks,

Glad that you got the invitation from NCBM. Thank you for letting us know. In regards

Hi Adam,
I'm glad we are all getting acquainted; thank you again for your responsiveness. I just wanted to
touch base quickly about the time you are holding on Secretary Duncan's schedule on April 4th
from 3:30-4:30pm EST. Is this time slot being held for an Education Task Force call or for a Black
Mayors Coalition call? My understanding when we spoke was that you were going to get back to
me about dates for the Education Task Force call, but I know we also mentioned the idea of having
a black mayors call.
We have not fully discussed with Mayor Johnson whether he would like to have a Black Mayors
Coalition call prior to the convening at NCBM. We can certainly discuss that with him, especially if
your office thinks it would be advantageous to host a preliminary call in order to better orient all
participating mayors for the convening at NCBM. Our office did have staffer-level calls with the
vast majority of those who planned to attend the meeting with Secretary Duncan at USCM this past
January. Moreover, I wanted to clarify with you what you have in mind.
Thank you again! Talk to you soon,

Thank you for the updates, Shannon and Stephanie. We would welcome a formal

travel on a weekday, so we welcome the recommendation of participating on Friday,
May 31. Also, the Secretary is interesting in having a dialogue with black mayors, so we
welcome the opportunity to provide brief remarks and participate in extended Q&A. Are
there any particular topics that NCBM would like him to address in his remarks?

Shannon, I also wanted to get back to you regarding scheduling a call with Mayor
Johnson?s coalition of black mayors in advance of NCBM. We are currently holding

some time on the Secretary?s schedule for Thursday, April 4, from 3:30 to 4:30 PM.
Please let me know if this date/time would work for Mayor Johnson and at least some of
your core members.

I still owe your team additional information from Kim Watkins-Foote, the Department?s
Liaison to the African-American community. We have not yet had a chance to talk. I

Hi Stacy and Adam,

As Shannon noted below, I am Mayor Johnson?s point person for matters related to the
National Black Conference of Mayors. Please let me know if I can be of assistance to
you in any way.

Do you have a sense of Secretary Duncan?s preferred format for his participation in the
NCBM annual meeting? Would he prefer to deliver a keynote address with time for
questions, or some other format? NCBM will be sending a formal invitation.

Also, the confirmed dates are now Wed., May 29th ? Sun., Jun 2nd. The conference will
not extend through Jun 3rd as noted below. Again, Fri., May 31st will likely have the
most participants. Please let us know when you are able to confirm which date and time
works best for Secretary Duncan?s schedule.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.


Best Regards,
Stephanie

Hi Stacey and Adam,

As a follow-up to our conversation the other day, I wanted to give you a brief update on
the National Conference of Black Mayors. Our office was able to get in touch with
Vanessa Williams at NCBM, and she says she would be very excited to have Secretary
Duncan attend the conference and that she will modify the conference agenda in order to
accommodate the Secretary?s schedule. The conference will take place May 29 ? June 3
in Atlanta. Vanessa notes that Friday, May 31 will likely be the day with the most
attendees, if that works with Secretary Duncan?s schedule.

In terms of the Mayor?s assuming the NCBM Presidency, Vanessa has confirmed her
support for him and verified that the election will moreover serve as a formality. Mayor
Johnson will be sworn in as President of NCBM at the conference. As an FYI, the
Mayor will be speaking with Vanessa by phone this morning at 9:30am PST/ 12:30pm
EST.


Stephanie Mash, Director of Governmental Affairs for African Americans, who I
mentioned in our call on Wednesday & is cc?ed here, will be your primary point of
contact for NCBM-related matters, and will be in touch soon to follow up with you. She
and I will be working closely together, along with our colleague, Meera, who is also
working on our national mobilization efforts.

As always, please reach out to any of us any time. I hope you both have a great

welcome the opportunity to provide brief remarks and participate in extended Q&A. Are
there any particular topics that NCBM would like him to address in his remarks?

Shannon, I also wanted to get back to you regarding scheduling a call with Mayor
Johnson?s coalition of black mayors in advance of NCBM. We are currently holding some
time on the Secretary?s schedule for Thursday, April 4, from 3:30 to 4:30 PM. Please let
me know if this date/time would work for Mayor Johnson and at least some of your core
members.

I still owe your team additional information from Kim Watkins-Foote, the Department?s
Liaison to the African-American community. We have not yet had a chance to talk. I will
follow-up as soon as possible.

Thanks again,
Adam

Hi Stacy and Adam,


As Shannon noted below, I am Mayor Johnson?s point person for matters related to the
National Black Conference of Mayors. Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you
in any way.

Do you have a sense of Secretary Duncan?s preferred format for his participation in the
NCBM annual meeting? Would he prefer to deliver a keynote address with time for
questions, or some other format? NCBM will be sending a formal invitation.

Also, the confirmed dates are now Wed., May 29th ? Sun., Jun 2nd. The conference will
not extend through Jun 3rd as noted below. Again, Fri., May 31st will likely have the most
participants. Please let us know when you are able to confirm which date and time works
best for Secretary Duncan?s schedule.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

Best Regards,
Stephanie

Subject: NCBM Update

Hi Stacey and Adam,

As a follow-up to our conversation the other day, I wanted to give you a brief update on
the National Conference of Black Mayors. Our office was able to get in touch with
Vanessa Williams at NCBM, and she says she would be very excited to have Secretary
Duncan attend the conference and that she will modify the conference agenda in order to
accommodate the Secretary?s schedule. The conference will take place May 29 ? June 3 in
Atlanta. Vanessa notes that Friday, May 31 will likely be the day with the most attendees,
if that works with Secretary Duncan?s schedule.

In terms of the Mayor?s assuming the NCBM Presidency, Vanessa has confirmed her
support for him and verified that the election will moreover serve as a formality. Mayor
Johnson will be sworn in as President of NCBM at the conference. As an FYI, the Mayor
will be speaking with Vanessa by phone this morning at 9:30am PST/ 12:30pm EST.

Stephanie Mash, Director of Governmental Affairs for African Americans, who I


mentioned in our call on Wednesday & is cc?ed here, will be your primary point of contact
for NCBM-related matters, and will be in touch soon to follow up with you. She and I will
be working closely together, along with our colleague, Meera, who is also working on our
national mobilization efforts.

As always, please reach out to any of us any time. I hope you both have a great weekend
and we will be in touch soon!

Best,

I have a nagging question about the census data Kasia provided at this
link:https://data.cms.gov/dataset/The-Number-of-Estimated-Eligible-Uninsured-People-/pc88ec56?
Consistently the state population estimates that I generate with this data are about 800k-1 million
below other estimates of state populations I find online. Would you be able to ask Kasia to clarify this
discrepancy? Eg. Maryland: population is about 4.9mil based on their doc, 5.9 million based on the
2012 census.
Just want to make sure my numbers are right for the Mayor.

Your data of over 2 million is correct Mariah.

We would definitely encourage individual mayors to look at the data and manipulate according to
their individualized plans for their city. CMS posted the census data at the website below. You can
see that its easy to export and use how they see fit.

Thank you Kasia for sending this along. If I understand this correctly, there are a
little over 2 million individuals ages 18-35 who are within 139-400% of the federal
poverty level (aka our target demographic). Is that accurate?

Eventually, we will also touch base with a membership list of NCBM cities and
townships and we would love to get a similar cut of the data for those cities and
townships. This would ideally go into the toolkits for the mayors so that the mayors
who sign up to support enrollment could get city-level data.

Thanks,

Thank you for joining our update call today and for sharing the great work that you are doing in your communities.

Below are the President?s remarks on the Affordable Care Act today. Please feel free to share these with your networks and let us know if there is anything we can do to
support your ongoing enrollment efforts,

THE WHITE HOUSE


Office of the Press Secretary
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
For Immediate Release December 3, 2013

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT


ON THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

South Court Auditorium


Eisenhower Executive Office Building

2:45 P.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT: Thanks to Monica, thanks to everybody standing behind me, and thanks for everybody out there who cares deeply about
this issue. Monica?s story is important because for all the day-to-day fights here in Washington around the Affordable Care Act, it?s stories like
hers that should remind us why we took on this reform in the first place.

And for too long, few things left working families more vulnerable to the anxieties and insecurities of today?s economy than a broken
health care system. So we took up the fight because we believe that, in America, nobody should have to worry about going broke just because
somebody in their family or they get sick. We believe that nobody should have to choose between putting food on their kids? table or taking
them to see a doctor. We believe we?re a better country than a country where we allow, every day, 14,000 Americans to lose their health
coverage; or where every year, tens of thousands of Americans died because they didn?t have health care; or where out-of-pocket costs drove
millions of citizens into poverty in the wealthiest nation on Earth. We thought we were better than that, and that?s why we took this on.

And that?s what?s gotten lost a little bit over the last couple of months. And our focus, rightly, had to shift towards working 24/7 to fix
the website, healthcare.gov, for the new marketplaces where people can buy affordable insurance plans. And today, the website is working well
for the vast majority of users. More problems may pop up, as they always do when you?re launching something new. And when they do, we?ll
fix those, too. But what we also know is that after just the first month, despite all the problems in the rollout, about half a million people across
the country are poised to gain health care coverage through marketplaces and Medicaid beginning on January 1st -- some for the very first time.

We know that -- half a million people. And that number is increasing every day and it is going to keep growing and growing and growing,
because we know that there are 41 million people out there without health insurance. And we know there are a whole bunch of folks out there
who are underinsured or don?t have a good deal. And we know the demand is there and we know that the product on these marketplaces is
good and it provides choice and competition for people that allow them, in some cases for the very first time, to have the security that health
insurance can provide.

The bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future. People want the financial stability of health insurance. And we?re
going to keep on working to fix whatever problems come up in any startup, any launch of a project this big that has an impact on one-sixth of
our economy, whatever comes up we?re going to just fix it because we know that the ultimate goal, the ultimate aim, is to make sure that
people have basic security and the foundation for the good health that they need.

Now, we may never satisfy the law?s opponents. I think that?s fair to say. Some of them are rooting for this law to fail -- that?s not my
opinion, by the way, they say it pretty explicitly. Some have already convinced themselves that the law has failed, regardless of the evidence.
But I would advise them to check with the people who are here today and the people that they represent all across the country whose lives have
been changed for the better by the Affordable Care Act.

The other day I got a letter from Julia Walsh in California. Earlier this year, Julia was diagnosed with leukemia and lymphoma. ?I have a
lot of things to worry about,? she wrote. ?But thanks to the [Affordable Care Act], there are lots of things I do not have to worry about, like?
whether there will be a lifetime cap on benefits, [or] whether my treatment will bankrupt my family?I can?t begin to tell you how much that
peace of mind means...? That?s what the Affordable Care Act means to Julia. She already had insurance, by the way, but because this law
banned lifetime limits on the care you or your family can receive, she?s never going to have to choose between providing for her kids or getting
herself well -- she can do both.

Sam Weir, a doctor in North Carolina, emailed me the other day. ?The coming years will be challenging for all of us in family medicine,? he
wrote. ?But my colleagues and I draw strength from knowing that beginning with the new year the preventive care many of our current patients
have been putting off will be covered and the patients we have not yet seen will finally be able to get the care that they have long needed.?
That?s the difference that the Affordable Care Act will make for many of Dr. Weir?s patients. Because more than 100 million Americans with
insurance have gained access to recommended preventive care like mammograms, or colonoscopies, or flu shots, or contraception to help them
stay healthy -- at no out-of-pocket cost.

At the young age of 23, Justine Ula is battling cancer for the second time. And the other day, her mom, Joann, emailed me from Cleveland
University Hospital where Justine is undergoing treatment. She told me she stopped by the pharmacy to pick up Justine?s medicine. If Justine
were uninsured, it would have cost her $4,500. But she is insured -- because the Affordable Care Act has let her and three million other young
people like Monica gain coverage by staying on their parents? plan until they?re 26. (Applause.) And that means Justine?s mom, all she had to
cover was the $25 co-pay.

Because of the Affordable Care Act, more than 7 million seniors and Americans with disabilities have saved an average of $1,200 on their
prescription medicine. This year alone, 8.5 million families have actually gotten an average of $100 back from their insurance company -- you
don?t hear that very often -- because it spent too much on things like overhead, and not enough on their care. And, by the way, health care
costs are rising at the slowest rate in 50 years. So we?re actually bending the cost of health care overall, which benefits everybody.

So that?s what this law means to millions of Americans. And my main message today is: We?re not going back. We?re not going to
betray Monica, or Julia, or Sam, or Justine, or Joann. I mean, that seems to be the only alternative that Obamacare?s critics have is, well, let?s
just go back to the status quo -- because they sure haven?t presented an alternative. If you ask many of the opponents of this law what exactly
they?d do differently, their answer seems to be, well, let?s go back to the way things used to be.

Just the other day, the Republican Leader in the Senate was asked what benefits people without health care might see from this law. And
he refused to answer, even though there are dozens in this room and tens of thousands in his own state who are already on track to benefit from
it. He just repeated ?repeal? over and over and over again. And obviously we?ve heard that from a lot of folks on that side of the aisle.

Look, I?ve always said I will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. If you?ve got good ideas, bring them to
me. Let?s go. But we?re not repealing it as long as I?m President and I want everybody to be clear about that.

We will make it work for all Americans. If you don?t like this law -- so, if despite all the millions of people who are benefitting from it, you
still think this law is a bad idea then you?ve got to tell us specifically what you?d do differently to cut costs, cover more people, make insurance
more secure. You can?t just say that the system was working with 41 million people without health insurance. You can?t just say that the system
is working when you?ve got a whole bunch of folks who thought they had decent insurance and then when they got sick, it turned out it wasn?t
there for them or they were left with tens of thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs that were impossible for them to pay.

Right now, what that law is doing -- (baby talks.) Yes, you agree with me. Right now, what this law is doing is helping folks and we?re
just getting started with the exchanges, just getting started with the marketplaces. So we?re not going to walk away from it. If I?ve got to fight
another three years to make sure this law works, then that?s what I?ll do. That?s what we?ll do.

But what?s important for everybody to remember is not only that the law has already helped millions of people but that there are millions
more who stand to be helped. And we?ve got to make sure they know that. And I?ve said very clearly that our poor execution in the first couple
months on the website clouded the fact that there are a whole bunch of people who stand to benefit. Now that the website is working for the
vast majority of people, we need to make sure that folks refocus on what?s at stake here, which is the capacity for you or your families to be able
to have the security of decent health insurance at a reasonable cost through choice and competition on this marketplace and tax credits that you
may be eligible for that can save you hundreds of dollars in premium costs every month, potentially.


So we just need people to -- now that we are getting the technology fixed -- we need you to go back, take a look at what?s actually going
on, because it can make a difference in your lives and the lives of your families. And maybe it won?t make a difference right now if you?re
feeling healthy, but I promise you, if somebody in your family -- heaven forbid -- gets sick, you?ll see the difference. And it will make all the
difference for you and your families.

So I?m going to need some help in spreading the word -- I?m going to need some help in spreading the word. I need you to spread the
word about the law, about its benefits, about its protections, about how folks can sign up. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Do not let the
initial problems with the website discourage you because it?s working better now and it?s just going to keep on working better over time. Every
day I check to make sure that it?s working better. And we?ve learned not to make wild promises about how perfectly smooth it?s going to be at
all time, but if you really want health insurance through the marketplaces, you?re going to be able to get on and find the information that you
need for your families at healthcare.gov.

So if you?ve already got health insurance or you?ve already taken advantage of the Affordable Care Act, you?ve got to tell your friends,
you?ve got to tell your family. Tell your coworkers. Tell your neighbors. Let?s help our fellow Americans get covered. Let?s give every
American a fighting chance in today?s economy.

Thank you so much, everybody. God bless you. God bless America.

It should be pretty easy for Corina (or whoever else gets involved in this over the

I also drafted how we could maybe track our accomplishments -- just bullet

Dear Mr. Kevin Johnson, Major of city of Sacramento:


I hope this email finds you well. I am reaching out to you to offer my services for
the upcoming World Conference of Black Mayors in Bermuda, 2014.
First of all, I would like congratulate you on your election as President of NCBM
affirmed by the Judge after the restitution of Mrs. Vanessa Williams. I am really
looking forward to perhaps working together soon.
Secondly, I would like to introduce myself. I am the Founder and CEO of Blended
World Group, LLC, a global multicultural consulting marketing firm in Chicago, IL.
(www.blendedworldgroup.com) Amongst my international projects, I was a key
contributor to the 3rd Global Summit of Black Majors last year in Colombia. I
personally made possible the presence and participation of Rev. Jesse Jackson in
Cartagena, Colombia during the Summit; and who was the main keynote speaker
at the closing ceremony. Through me, Rev Jackson was also able to participate/aid
in the rescue of the US Marine kidnaped by the Colombian guerrilla: (FARC).
(http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/news/2013/10/02/jesse-jackson-picked-bycolombia-farc-to-facilitate-release-us-marine-held/)
Lastly, I would like to make you aware of my interest in participating again this
year in the World Conference of Black Mayors in Bermuda. I would like to set up

time to discuss all my fresh ideas and how I can contribute to it. Please let me
know when and if this is possible. I have copied in this email Rev. Jacksons
chief of staff Mr. John Mitchell as my reference.

Looking forward to meeting/talking soon.

Joaquin,

Here is a quote for the Mayor:

"The National Conference of Black Mayor's Convention was an incredibleopportunity


to join some of the most talented Mayors from across the country and abroad to
celebrate the great work of the organization and renew our commitment to the
communities we serve and each other. I left inspired by the Convention and the
promise of this organization,and humbled by the opportunity to serve as First Vice
President."

Mariah and Aisha, I'd appreciate any thoughts on this, if you have any. Not sure if
this accurately reflects the Mayor's voice, more of a PC statement. This was not
easy given our actual experience at the Convention. :)

Great, I?ll work on getting a call in number. If you can wait on his
email, I could probably have a call-in and password number for you by
mid-morning, east coast, tomorrow. In case you want to include the
call-in number in the save the date.

And happy to touch base next week about the call. I will actually be
out of the office on vacation the 13-16, so talking Monday the 12 th
would be best.

Subject: Re: ACA Marketplace Toolkit

Thanks for the tool kit. I will review it when I return to the office. In
response to your points raised below:
1. Cover Letter- We have drafted a cover letter from the Mayor and will
send you a copy for your input. We are also going through the internal
review as well.
2. We have also drafted an email for Mayor Johnson to send out today
or tomorrow announcing the meeting and inviting all to hold the date
and plan to participate. This will be the initial invitation from the Mayor
and then we will follow up with more details, call-in information and
the toolkit.
3. Yes, the Mayor will send the actual invitation.
4. Conference call- We would appreciate your assistance with the
conference call line.
5. Estimate- I will try to get a more accurate estimate of participants
later. For now I we estimate on the low end 20-30 mayors.
6. I think it would be good to touch base early next week to go over
Agenda and the overall plan.

Thanks for your assistance.

We?re happy to announce that we have a finalized version

cover letter from the Mayor to accompany the toolkit, have
you had a chance to draft something? We are also happy
to offer any help in rolling out the toolkit to UCBM
members. Please let us know what else you need from us.


Also, in terms of a conference call line, if you don?t have
something, we can help provide one. We want to confirm
through that the Mayor will send out the actual invite,
correct? Also, we?ll just need to discuss the expected
number of participants and stay in touch regarding RSVPs so
we can ensure there are the appropriate number of lines.

Thanks Meera - apparently the change was not communicated to folks, so we have
to inform Duncan, Lomax, and Johns' people that the session now begins at
2:00pm. I will make sure that happens.
Given the fact that things do not run on time in this conference, 1:30 was
probably too ambitious anyway...

Aisha I think our emails got crossed - I recommend we keep it at 2:00pm provided
that it's not a problem for Duncan or Johns (it's not for Lomax).
The luncheon probably cannot end early due to food service and people needing to
eat.
Shannon is now copied as she's been corresponding with Duncan and Johns' people.
Shannon is there anything we should be aware of regarding this new time from your
end? Have you been able to connect with either of the offices regarding the time
change?

Hi Mariah, Eric and Roniesha!

I hope this email finds you all well as autumn continues


to emerge in its brilliant colors. We are preparing the
October Newsletter layout, which is centered around
Voting. I am reaching out to see if Mayor Johnson as
Chair of the Education Committee would be interested in
writing an article around highlighting the issues most
prevalent in education and the next steps the
administration should take within the next four years. If
so, I will forward the specs (i.e. word count and deadline)
for the article. If you have any questions or comments,
please contact me directly at 404-765-644 ext.102 or by
email at hhead@ncbm.org. Thanks so much!!!

Aisha and Dom,
I ran this idea past the mayor and he would like us to proceed. Essentially we are
building our case for Ed reform with the black mayors in NCBM by taking on this
project. I think this could go into our WFF documentation as well as set the tone
for 2013 resolutions that MKJ plans on bringing to NCBM.
Longer conversation to follow, but wanted to make sure you had this initial info
right away.

FYI need to discuss with you whether you want to put an article in the
Ncbm newsletter re: Education.
Seems like a home run to connect with election, education being
bipartisan, and even our coalition building from the 2 conferences. I'm
thinking SF could write and I or Meera could project manage.
We can discuss in person but wanted you to be aware. Thoughts?

We can try again. The problem is they apparently have so many lists. I did not get anything regarding
the call at 5:30 pm after the Mayor could not join them on a press call. Yet we were in touch with the
White House yesterday. I will follow up with Kellyn.

Hi!

Yes, I can only imagine!!

Later this week sounds good. I didnt see Elizabeth on the email, but if she can follow
up with me, lets find a few minute to chat late this week, and then we can set up a
day/time for me to come to Sacramento to provide a quick demonstration of
TweetMyJobs.

Hi Mariah,

SO funny to run into another SHS person outside of Chicago, and at the
NCBM Conference in Atlanta no less!

I looked for you later that afternoon I wish we had exchanged numbers
so that we could have tried to meet up. I still want to hear about how you
ended up in California there arent many of us out here! Dana Ward
from my year, Ashley Stearns from the year ahead of me, and Josh
Entman from your year are the only SHS people I see in LA. Is there
anyone out in Sacramento?

I know you mentioned that the CEO of TweetMyJobs, Robin D. Richards,


chatted briefly with Mayor Johnson. Id love to fill you in, too, on how
were working with cities. Let me know if you have a few minutes to jump
on the phone tomorrow or Wednesday, and Id love to give you the
overview of how were working with innovative leaders across the
country to help put their constituents back to work.

byron,
i'd certainly be interested in speaking with a potential candidate of your caliber for the stand up
executive director position, and would appreciate any referrals. to answer your question, stand up is
based in sacramento, and we are offering a competitive salary and benefits package. i've attached the
job description for your reference.
to give you a little background, i have no direct oversight or jurisdiction over local school districts in
sacramento's current governance structure. however, i firmly believe that you cannot have a great city
without great schools. stand up is the vehicle through which i can ensure that every child has the
opportunity to attend an excellent public school in sacramento.
at the local level, the stand up team is launching my citywide third grade reading campaign, working on
bringing city year and teach for america sites to sacramento, establishing a city-schools collaborative
with local school superintendents and districts, and mobilizing the community around important policy
issues such as parent trigger. at the national level, stand up supports my efforts to advocate for muchneeded legislation around policies such as Race to the Top, ESEA, and LIFO ("last in, first out") as chair
of secretary duncan's mayors advisory council, the us conference of mayors task force on public
education, and the national conference of black mayors.
stand up's efforts are supported by some of the nation's top philanthropists and granting organizations,
including eli broad, the kellogg foundation, at&t, bank of america, wells fargo and others, and we are
actively pursuing other funders to expand our efforts.
i hope this is helpful. please let me know if you have any questions and feel free to send any promising
candidates my way.
best,
kevin

your caliber for the stand up executive director position, and would
appreciate any referrals. to answer your question, stand up is based in
sacramento, and we are offering a competitive salary and benefits
package. i've attached the job description for your reference.
to give you a little background, i have no direct oversight or
jurisdiction over local school districts in sacramento's current
governance structure. however, i firmly believe that you cannot have a
great city without great schools. stand up is the vehicle through which
i can ensure that every child has the opportunity to attend an excellent
public school in sacramento.
at the local level, the stand up team is launching my citywide third
grade reading campaign, working on bringing city year and teach for
america sites to sacramento, establishing a city-schools collaborative
with local school superintendents and districts, and mobilizing the
community around important policy issues such as parent trigger. at the
national level, stand up supports my efforts to advocate for much-needed
legislation around policies such as Race to the Top, ESEA, and LIFO
("last in, first out") as chair of secretary duncan's mayors advisory
council, the us conference of mayors task force on public education, and
the national conference of black mayors.
stand up's efforts are supported by some of the nation's top
philanthropists and granting organizations, including eli broad, the
kellogg foundation, at&t, bank of america, wells fargo and others, and
we are actively pursuing other funders to expand our efforts.
i hope this is helpful. please let me know if you have any questions
and feel free to send any promising candidates my way.
best,
kevin

would be in the database though...

Good morning Board Members,


As you are aware, as of June 5, 2013 I was no longer with the National
Conference of Black Mayors. I have enjoyed working with the organization and
I sincerely appreciate having the chance to work with you. Thank you for the
support and continuing the legacy of the organization. Your leadership has
taught and allowed me to grow during my time at NCBM. It has been an
honor working with you for the past 5 years. I know there is a lot going on

with the organization right now but I know under your leadership the
organization will be restored.
I now have my own consulting firm in which I am doing strategic planning and
event management for both domestic and international elected officials,
business leaders, foundations, and nonprofit organizations in need of my
expertise.J I would like and appreciate our continued relationship as I start
this next phase of my career. I have several clients that may want to partner
so this will not be the last time you hear from meJ.
Please note, that this decision is based on my growth and my time to move
on to what God has in store for me. My past career history and NCBM has
been a great stepping stone for the road ahead.
Please keep in touch. I may be reached at my new email address
shantelg@prestigiouslivinginc.netor via my cell phone at 404-834-7722.
Thank you and I look forward to our continued relationship!

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Sacramento Kings are proud to welcome Mayor William Bell from
Birmingham, AL, Vice President of the Natl conf of black mayors. (he may stand at the time for
recognition).

**Because this intro is going after another element in the timeout, we do not have time to mention
the 50 th Anniversary of the tragic Birmingham church bombings. It wouldnt be right to rush that
announcement, so leaving it out.

Also.please find attached a schedule for tomorrow for the DTP tour. Also a game rundown
(please keep the game rundown confidential).

Let me know if you need anything else.

Lol This is for the NCBM Global Summit in Colombia.

I think its a travel agency, because they are offering to help with the booking of travel (i.e. hotel and
plane tickets). In the link provided, they listed they offer prices and travel information.

Safe to say that I think you can ignore this.

Gun Buy Back Program ( May/June Timeframe)


Assist with promotions, working with Fox 40, developing handouts, launching the program including
working with partners, tracking participation, preparing for next effort, etc.)

For Arts Sake


Assist with the planning and re set of the FAS initiative including identifying roles and responsibility
of partners, coordinating with the Arts community, Mayors convening of Philanthropic
communities, and communicating that effectively. Working with Sacramento Metropolitan Arts
Commission to take a larger role in FAS.

Homelessness
Assist with the Mayors Office role in homelessness including the formation of a regional JPA and
working on other activities.

Dialogue on Mental Health


Assist with coordinating, scheduling, invitations associated with planning and implementation of
dialogue in Sacramento. (National Announcement in late April. Event likely to be July or August)

Year of the Food

Assist with the establishment of steering committee, including roles and responsibilities, vetting the
calls, reviewing requests, promoting activities and working with the various partners.

Lets Move

Assist in the development and coordination of the Lets Move for Sacramento including working

We can either have a fellow for each area or can combine all or some. I am open. I think they are
interested and innovative projects that can consume a lot of time or less. For example, it is hard to
imagine below, that it would be a full time assignment for someone to assist in the research of Faith
and Civil Rights.

Sorry that was unclear. These are calls being made on city landlines. I have made

do go through.
We want to be sure we aren't violating any rules or causing any budget problems.

Hi Patti,

Sorry that was unclear. These are calls being made on city landlines. I have made
calls from the Phoenix Room, Mayor's conference room and Nicole's line. The calls
do go through.

We want to be sure we aren't violating any rules or causing any budget problems.

Thanks.

Hi Aisha - generally city phones won't allow international calling. Are you using a city phone? If
you are using your personal cell then we should maybe add international calling temporarily so its
less expensive and reimburse you in some way? I understand the need to make the calls. I will be
in tomorrow.

Hi Patti,

Wanted to check in with you on international calls I have made and will continue
to have to make for NCBM to Columbia.

Wanted to check-in and see if that is something we should not do or can do but
need to report in some sort of way.


Let us know how we should proceed.

Seems like this will be a great event...Please confirm my attendance


along with Blenda Deberry,Deberry and Associates, Larry Veal, film
maker, Rule 12, and his organization, Be More Positive, and his
lawyer, Larry Shackleford from Troutman and Sanders Law Firm...They
are doing a film about the impact that the schools are having on the
lives of our youth and the outcome being one of driving them to dropout
out of school, greater violence and a life of crime...I would like Mayor
Johnson to look at this project while he is here as well...

The other project that we talked about before is being driven by Susan
Taylor, formerly of Essence Magazine...She started National Cares,
which is a national mentoring program for underserved youth in about

58 cities...Her new program is ' A New Way Forward, Healing What's


Hurting Black America'. Susanalong with about 60 other national,
academic, faith-based, media, and community leaders have come
together to provide an evidence based program that addresses the
unspoken pain in our families that must be dealt with first for healing to
occur...

I would like Mayor Johnson to review both of these projects and


evaluate for possible impact...I think both of thesenetworks could give
us national impact on the education issue...Also, itwould begreat in
that we can engage these programs toaddress and advance the
agenda of the educational challengesfrom MayorJohnson's

Hi Meera,

Seems like this will be a great event...Please confirm my attendance


along with Blenda Deberry,Deberry and Associates, Larry Veal, film
maker, Rule 12, and his organization, Be More Positive, and his
lawyer, Larry Shackleford from Troutman and Sanders Law Firm...They
are doing a film about the impact that the schools are having on the
lives of our youth and the outcome being one of driving them to dropout
out of school, greater violence and a life of crime...I would like Mayor
Johnson to look at this project while he is here as well...

The other project that we talked about before is being driven by Susan
Taylor, formerly of Essence Magazine...She started National Cares,
which is a national mentoring program for underserved youth in about
58 cities...Her new program is ' A New Way Forward, Healing What's
Hurting Black America'. Susanalong with about 60 other national,
academic, faith-based, media, and community leaders have come
together to provide an evidence based program that addresses the
unspoken pain in our families that must be dealt with first for healing to
occur...

I would like Mayor Johnson to review both of these projects and


evaluate for possible impact...I think both of thesenetworks could give
us national impact on the education issue...Also, itwould begreat in
that we can engage these programs toaddress and advance the
agenda of the educational challengesfrom MayorJohnson's

Please see the attached letter from the Special Needs Network in Los

2014.
Aside from our firm?s ECE Works Workforce Development Project, First
Five LA and the Los Angeles County Office of Education are cosponsoring the event with the Special Needs Network. A hard copy was
hand-delivered to your office this morning.
Legislative Black Caucus Chair Holly Mitchell is confirmed and we
expect to have Senate President pro Tempore-Elect Kevin De Leon,
Second District County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, and State
Superintendent Tom Torlakson there, among others.
We have spent a good deal of time sharing with those in LA your
philosophy that by the second grade, if children are not reading at grade

level that they?re in danger. We?ve also been vigorous in expressing the
vital importance of Indivizible of communicating that message widely in

We really hope you can put this on your calendar for the morning of April

Best regards,

Hi Kellyn,

Thanks. I plan to join in. Have you notified the NCBM who have been participating or shall I? And
shall I assume unless otherwise indicated that it is okay to invite NCBM to these calls? Lastly I
assume the call with Valerie Jarred in which Mayor Johnson was asked to present is still on hold?
Thanks for your clarification.

Thanks Cassandra ? this call is intended for key staff in top markets about 20 people, so would ask
that you not send out to NCBM.

The call with Valerie Jarrett is still on hold until we are able to reschedule when she returns from
South Africa. Thanks for your help and understanding.

I did some research on this vendor, National Conference of Black Mayors. In the past it shows they
paid $1,500. Which matches the municipality population sliding scale on the invoice. Is it safe to
select this amount for this invoice?

Hey Kevin,
So ?congratulations? on your victory at NCBM. I put it in
quotes as it relates to your personal victory because, while
your tenure as President there might be short, it is quite the
victory for the organization to get out from under the cloud of
corruption and confusion for it and its supporters.
Meanwhile, our friend JC Watts is doing some good things. His
efforts over the past several years to start the Black Television
News Channel (BTNC) are coming together. Capital has been
raised, a station HQ has been established with Florida A&M to
set up on their campus and develop a curriculum around the
station, and agreement has been reached with Dish Network
to carry the station, and efforts for carriage on other stations
continue. Its going to be a good thing to support HCBUs and
provide a news station with an emphasis on our community.

Its pretty cool.


A coalition is being organized to support the station and a
strategy is being developed around the announced merger of
Comcast and Time Warner to push for support for the station
at the Department of Justice and the FCC, given that there is
not one Black national news station in the country. In one of
our calls last week. JC raised the question of whether it makes
sense to approach you about support from NCBM (and if there
is even enough time for you to help, given your short tenure
as President). I suspect that you don?t need to be the head
of an organization if you want to move it in a certain
direction?.
JC and I will regroup in the next couple of weeks after his
next round of meetings at the FCC on strategy going forward.
Would it be ok with you if I contact your office to arrange a
conference call to solicit your guidance regarding NCBM and,
if it is appropriate, discuss your possible support?
Thanks

Good afternoon,

Tonight at 9 PM EST, the President will deliver the State of the Union where he will
discuss three key principles: opportunity, action, and optimism. The President sees
2014 as a Year of Action. He has a pen and he has a phone, and he will use them to
take executive actions and enlist every American ? from state and local elected officials
to young people, veterans, workers, business owners, and folks from across the
country ? in this collective effort to restore opportunity for all. We encourage you to
watch the enhanced version and get a behind-the-scenes perspective of the speech by
visiting www.WhiteHouse.gov/SOTU, and use the #SOTU hashtag when sharing your
reactions on social media.
You and your constituents are also invited to join the White House for it?s first-ever
virtual ?Big Block of Cheese Day,? during which dozens of White House officials will
take to social media for a day-long 'open house' to answers questions from everyday
Americans in real-time. From 2:30-3:00 PM EST on Wednesday, January 29 th , I will

tweet live responses to questions from you and your constituents about the State of
the Union speech and other concerns facing your cities and hometowns. To submit a
question, include #AskTheWH and @DavidAgnew44 in your tweet any time before 3
PM EST on Wednesday.

Please feel free to share this opportunity broadly with your constituents and other

Subject: Judge for Healthy Hometown Program in Mississippi

Mayor Johnson, the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation
has a Healthy Hometown Program established to encourage and
reward exemplary community health and wellness. The Foundation
exists to improve the health of Mississippians, and this program is
designed to help municipal leaders in their efforts to make
communities, and the people who live in them, healthier.
With your proven record of success in municipal health and wellness,
we request that you consider serving as one of our Healthy Hometown
Program judges for 2013. Each year, we obtain a panel of prestigious
out-of-state judges with health and wellness expertise. The Healthy
Hometown applications would be sent to you electronically, each with
an electronic scoring sheet.
The municipality with the highest number of points will be designated
as the ?Healthiest Hometown in Mississippi? and receive a $50,000
grant to further their health and wellness efforts. A town of any size
may receive this designation.
A municipality from each of these three categories will receive a
designation as a ?Healthy Hometown,? along with a $25,000 grant
from the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation:
Large Town: 15,000 or more residents
Medium Town: 5,001 ? 14,999 residents
Small Town: Fewer than 5,000 residents
Winning hometowns will be announced at the Mississippi Municipal
League Annual Conference, scheduled for July 15 ? July 17, 2013, in
Biloxi, Mississippi. At this conference, we will also announce the names
of the Healthy Hometown judges, followed by publication of the
judges? names and brief bios on our website.

Please visit our website at http://www.healthiermississippi.org/ to find


additional information about the Healthy Hometown Program.
We hope that you are available to serve as one of our three judges for
the Healthy Hometown Program in 2013. We would appreciate
receiving your response by March 31, 2013.
Best of health,

Thank you for your patience with this request. Because of the Mayor?s new roles with
the US Conference of Mayors and the National Conference of Black Mayors, we are
unfortunately still unable to confirm his availability to travel to Anaheim on November
17. We understand if you must move forward without his participation, however if

KevinSo good to see you in San Francisco yesterday. Its always inspiring to get that
many people together who truly care about education.
As I mentioned we'd like to invite you to be the keynote speaker on November
17, 2012 at the MIND Awards Gala. The Gala is at Disney's Grand California
Hotel & Spa in Anaheim, CA.
The event will be honoring schools and teachers across the country. MIND
Research Institute, a non-profit, has developed a visual approach to math that has
seen tremendous success in a range of national locations. Results, as indicated by
the summary and graph attached are very good with only two computer lab
sessions each week. ST Math works particularly for students with reading
difficulties or limited English or for visual learners (ie, most kids). For more
information on past events and MIND visit their site.
Please let me know if I can follow up with any other details. Happy to discuss
logistics and honorarium with your staff.

Best,
Caroline

I am assisting the Mayor with his work with the National Conference of
Black Mayors (NCBM). He is the current 1st VP of NCBM. NCBM has
requested that the Mayor provide a short article (1.5 pages) on the

Sounds like some great progress. Congratulations on the commitment forms and the

Re: UW: I sent a 1 pager & some other documents about 2 weeks ago. I'll resend it.
Unfortunately we never got a chance to discuss if it was sufficient, so let me know if

start the race of life already behind.
> President Barack Obama
> State of the Union, February 12, 2013
>
> The beginning years of a childs life are critical for building the early foundation needed for success
later in school and in life. Leading economists agree that high-quality early learning programs can help
level the playing field for children from lower-income families on vocabulary, social and emotional
development, while helping students to stay on track and stay engaged in the early elementary grades.
Children who attend these programs are more likely to do well in school, find good jobs, and succeed in
their careers than those who dont. And research has shown that taxpayers receive a high average
return on investments in high-quality early childhood education, with savings in areas like improved
educational outcomes, increased labor productivity, and a reduction in crime.
>
> In his State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to expand access to highquality preschool to every child in America. As part of that effort, the President will propose a series of
new investments that will establish a continuum of high-quality early learning for a child beginning at
birth and continuing to age 5. By doing so, the President would invest critical resources where we know

the return on our dollar is the highest: in our youngest children.


>
> Providing High-Quality Preschool for Every Child: The President is proposing a new federal-state
partnership to provide all low- and moderate-income four-year old children with high-quality preschool,
while also expanding these programs to reach additional children from middle class families and
incentivizing full-day kindergarten policies. This investment financed through a cost-sharing model
with states will help close Americas school readiness gap and ensure that children have the chance to
enter kindergarten ready for success.
>
> Growing the Supply of Effective Early Learning Opportunities for Young Children: To expand highquality early learning opportunities in the years before preschool, the President will call for a significant
investment in a new Early Head Start-Child Care partnership. Competitive grants will support
communities that expand the availability of Early Head Start and child care providers that can meet the
highest standards of quality for infants and toddlers, serving children from birth through age 3.
>
> Extending and Expanding Evidence-Based, Voluntary Home Visiting: Voluntary home visiting
programs enable nurses, social workers, and other professionals to connect families to services and
educational support that will improve a childs health, development, and ability to learn. President
Obama has already committed $1.5 billion to expand home visitation to hundreds of thousands of
Americas most vulnerable children and families across all 50 states. The President will pursue
substantial investments to expand these important programs to reach additional families in need.
>
> The Presidents Commitment to Early Education
>
> A zip code should never predetermine the quality of any childs educational opportunities. Yet studies
show that children from low-income families are less likely to have access to high-quality early
education, and less likely to enter school prepared for success. By third grade, children from low-income
families who are not reading at grade level are six times less likely to graduate from high school than
students who are proficient. Often, the high costs of private preschool and lack of public programs also
narrow options for middle-class families.
>
> High-quality early childhood education provides the foundation for all childrens success in school and
helps to reduce achievement gaps. Despite the individual and economic benefits of early education, our
nation has lagged in its commitment to ensuring the provision of high quality public preschool in our
childrens earliest years. The Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) estimates
that the United States ranks 28th out of 38 countries for the share of four-year olds enrolled in early
childhood education. And fewer than 3 in 10 four-year olds are enrolled in high-quality programs.
>
> Preschool for All
>
> The Presidents proposal will improve quality and expand access to preschool, through a cost
sharing partnership with all 50 states, to extend federal funds to expand high-quality public preschool to
reach all low- and moderate-income four-year olds from families at or below 200% of poverty. The U.S.
Department of Education will allocate dollars to states based their share of four-year olds from low- and
moderate-income families and funds would be distributed to local school districts and other partner
providers to implement the program. The proposal would include an incentive for states to broaden
participation in their public preschool program for additional middle-class families, which states may
choose to reach and serve in a variety of ways, such as a sliding-scale arrangement.
>
> Funds will support states as they ensure that children are enrolled in high-quality programs. In
order to access federal funding, states would be required to meet quality benchmarks that are linked to
better outcomes for children, which include:
>
> o State-level standards for early learning;
> o Qualified teachers for all preschool classrooms; and
> o A plan to implement comprehensive data and assessment systems.
>
> Preschool programs across the states would meet common and consistent standards for quality across
all programs, including:
> o Well-trained teachers, who are paid comparably to K-12 staff;

> o Small class sizes and low adult to child ratios;


> o A rigorous curriculum;
> o Comprehensive health and related services; and
> o Effective evaluation and review of programs.
>
> The proposal also encourages states to expand the availability of full-day kindergarten. Only 6 out
of 10 of Americas kindergarten students have access to a full day of learning. In order to ensure that
our kindergartners spend the time they need in school to reach rigorous benchmarks and standards,
funds under this program may also be used to expand full-day kindergarten once states have provided
preschool education to low- and moderate-income four year-olds.
>
> Under the Presidents proposal, investment in the federal Head Start program will continue to grow.
The Presidents plan will maintain and build on current Head Start investments, to support a greater
share of infants, toddlers, and three-year olds in Americas Head Start centers, while state preschool
settings will serve a greater share of four-year olds.
>
> Quality Early Learning for Our Youngest Children
>
> The President will also launch a new Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership program, to support
states and communities that expand the availability of Early Head Start and child care providers that can
meet the highest standards of quality for infants and toddlers, serving children from birth through age
3. Funds will be awarded through Early Head Start on a competitive basis to enhance and support early
learning settings; provide new, full-day, comprehensive services that meet the needs of working
families; and prepare children for the transition into preschool. This strategy combined with an
expansion of publicly funded preschool education for four-year olds will ensure a cohesive and wellaligned system of early learning for children from birth to age five.
>
> The President is proposing to expand the Administrations evidence-based home visiting initiative,

Hello Dionna

Mayor Kevin Johnson (City of Sacramento) and Michelle Rhee (StudentsFirst CEO) are
hoping to meet with Mr. Lomax in the very near future. Both are acquaintances of Mr.
Lomax. The topics for discussion will be the Mayor's national mobilization efforts
through his education non-profit, STAND UP (a 501 c3 organization), and specifically,
his mobilization of African American civil rights leaders from around the country to
support a progressive education reform policy agenda. STAND UP is convening civil
rights leaders from around the country this October and would love to see if Mr.
Lomax would like to be part of that Summit.

As the Summit is quickly approaching, we would like to get this meeting scheduling as
soon as possible.

Hello Shantel ?

Thank you for the emailing the electronic invite as we never received the mailed hard
copy you referenced.

Given the event is taking place today, Mayor Johnson is obviously unable to attend. I?
m hoping that it is possible to receive such invites with more advanced notice given the
Mayor?s calendar tends to fill up quickly. We are working at least 30-60 days out. 4
days simply isn?t enough notice to prepare him for an event in another city.

Sincerely,

Hi Juliet,
I assume you're still writing the article about ACA. Here is the
statement from Mayor Johnson that we discussed.

?We all know the harsh reality that there are


over 35 million Americans who are uninsured ?
just one diagnosis or accident away from a

health crisis that can tear a family apart.As


President of the National Conference of Black
Mayors, anorganization of 600 mayors
representing 48 million people,I?m proud that
we will be working directly with the White
House to lead efforts to educate, engage and
ultimately enroll our nation's uninsured .
Because of a shared belief that access to health
care is a basic human right for every American,
we have launched the Affordable Care Act
Outreach Initiative. We can serve as a unified
voice for the African American community ?
leading in getting the word out because we
know what?s important to our communities.? Mayor Kevin Johnson
Thanks,
Ben Sosenko
Press Secretary to Mayor Kevin Johnson

Re: Mayors Challenge to End Homelessness
Friday, May 30, 2014 12:08:58 AM

Daniel,
SSF is still working with the City on the details of the $500,000 of the $1 M. Right
now it is focused on the highest users of hospitals which could be some veterans but
not necessarily so. There are other resources that are specifically designed for the
homeless veterans.
Specifically the challenge is like every other challenge that comes from the White
House. You sign on, fold it into your existing programs and those that measure
success rise to the top and become the poster children and the rest of the cities just
keep working on it. I did inquire about specific actions and couldn't find anything
that was overbearing.
We have a number of organizations that specifically work on veteran homeless
programs including SSF, SHRA, VOA and others. SSF work on homeless initiatives
every single day. In addition the City is hiring a person to deal with Homeless issues.
I'm not sure what they will be doing but the emphasis of much funding will be
towards veterans.
For me, I suggest that we spend a few minutes getting all those you need to be
involved in the discussion either on a call or in a meeting.
This is a City issue that is not the arena, not business or developer driven and
focuses on an initiative that the Mayor has been a champion for the past 5 years.
This is what we do.
To be perfectly honest, I fill we a slighting the City business with all the other USCM,
NCBM, AAMA, Indivizible, NBA issues. While I love them all, I think it is my job to
bring forward initiatives and opportunities to further the Mayor's efforts to improve
the fabric of our City,
Again, what would be helpful is to have a frequent meeting of those that are
involved in the City day to day issues like you do with the Policy team so we can
better make these decisions. I don't recall being engaged or informed about any
decisions outside of City business and have minimum to do with the work that is
being done. There is certainly a process void that we can address.
As I discussed with you earlier, I will be calendaring a regularly meeting for us to
discuss the City issues with the goals to 1. Better communicate on key City issues; 2.
Develop City priorities for our office; and 3. Develop and implement a process for
consideration of City Initiatives and activities.
The White House and USICH are trying to finalize their list for the event on June 4th.
The website includes dozens of cities that have signed on. I'm okay with
recommending to the Mayor if he wants to do it.
I would like to discuss with you in the morning and get to the Mayor tomorrow. I
have an 8 and 9 am meetings and then the 1:30 PM with the churches. After that, I

will be focused on The Big day next week.


Does 10:30 or 11 AM or so work for you to discuss further?
Thanks.

Although I know some of the NCBM mayors were on the call it would

encourage the Mayors to do a Day of Action on March 8 and make a

Can you send it out. Would you need be to draft a couple of lead in

Hi,
See below the summary of the ACA call with the White House. Yes, the president
joined in. I am working locally to see what we can do. Although I know some of
the NCBM mayors were on the call it would be nice to send the recap from the
White House to NCBM and encourage the Mayors to do a Day of Action on March
8 and make a hard press through March 31.
Can you send it out. Would you need be to draft a couple of lead in sentences or
will you? Thanks.

Hi Adrianne,
I wanted to also throw this out to you as a great option for the Mayor if he is available. Tweet My Jobs is
sponsoring this event on Friday, June 1st from 1:30-2:30pm. Please keep me posted. Thank you for all
your help.
Best regards,
Alisha

ALL,
We are very excited about the NCBM event this week In Atlanta, GA! (See attached AD that will be in the
NCBM Convention guide)!
Especially around our session: Mayors, Social Media & Jobs:
Mayors, Social Media and #JOBS
Social media is not the way of the future, it is the way of now. According to an August, 2011 Pew Internet
Research Report, over 65% of online adults use social networking sites. As Mayors across the country are
discovering, the 21st century is one of the greatest periods in the history of the world in which to govern
because of ground-breaking technology and communications tools. Through social media tools like
Facebook and Twitter, Mayors can communicate with constituents and key audiences instantly and
frequently. Innovative leaders are realizing that social media?s impact extends beyond just communication
and that social media can be used to address major social problems, including one of the biggest problems
facing every Mayor today: #JOBS.
Despite the reports we hear in the media about the unemployment rate dropping or staying constant, we
know that there are jobs in our cities. Local employers are hiring every day. New businesses are opening
and existing businesses are expanding. The key is to connect these job opportunities with constituent job
seekers. Key city leaders from two major American cities will discuss how they are embracing social media
to connect their constituent job seekers with small, medium and large businesses.
Do you wish you had a technology platform to power your jobs creation initiatives and campaigns? Do you
wish you had better data to understand exactly what the jobs situation is in your city, the number of job
seekers and number of opportunities, and details about exactly what and where those opportunities are?
Are you interested in strengthening your city?s image nationally and internationally to attract new citizens
and businesses to move to the area? Are you looking to promote local and regional businesses? Join this

session and hear from two of America?s great cities as to how technology, and specifically social media, is
helping to address these issues so they can put Americans in their city back to work!
The current Agenda can be located on at the NCBM Website:
http://www.ncbm.org
SPONSOR: TWEETMYJOBS
BRENDAN M. COTTER, SVP, Market Development

Mr. Cotter is responsible for the development and strategic direction of the TweetMyJobs Government
Platform for jobs. By harnessing the power of the Internet, social network and mobile into a branded and
dedicated jobs platform, government can promote and enable connectivity between local businesses that
have employment opportunities for their constituents. Through this innovative new technology, elected
and community leaders can create a hub where job seekers and businesses can come together so that
open positions are filled with top local talent thus enhancing the economic well being of the communities.
Previously, Mr. Cotter was the senior vice president of market development at Blackboard Inc.
(NASDAQ:BBBB). He focused on the initiatives for the next generation of notification and alerts technology,
with an emphasis on proximity and CMAS (cell broadcasting alerts). Prior, as president of Blackboard

dating back to his years at the University of South Carolina where he served as President of the Student

unanimously to grant the posthumous pardon, the first for South Carolina in a capital case.
Having taken office in July 2010, Mayor Benjamin's first term has been characterized by his firm belief in
Columbia's potential and the intense focus on economic development and job creation that has helped

PROPOSED QUESTIONS FOR MAYOR BENJAMIN (PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD TO THIS), AND PANELISTS,
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EXPAND ON HOW THESE QUESTIONS IMPACT YOU AS LEADERS, AND HOW THEY
IMPACT THE CITIES YOU REPRESENT!
1. Let's talk about job creation first. This is the number one priority for every Mayor across the country.
Within your Cities, can you please outline the job creation initiatives that have been put in place and share
how you've been able to make them successful.
2. There are millions of open jobs across the United States but unemployment remains high. What role
can our Cites / Mayors play to connect job seekers with employers?
3. It's no secret that unemployment rates for veterans are very high but there are other groups that are
particularly hurting like youth and recent graduates. How can Cities support federal programs like Joining
Forces and Summer Jobs Plus or are local programs more important?
4. According to NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) 7 out of every 10 internships turn
into full time jobs suggesting that internships are the "new interview." How are you encouraging your
small businesses to hire interns?
5. According to Jobvite, 36% of job seekers have trouble finding positions that match their skills. How do
Cities track this problem and make sure that the right jobs are available for their citizens?
6. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, you are 20 times more likely to find a job if you
have are introduced to a hiring employer. What can Mayors / Cities do to help job seekers maximize a
positive outcome in their job search?
7. In recent years there have been 2 huge technology advances beyond the Internet - first social media
and now mobile. I want to talk about social media first. More than 1 billion people use Facebook and
Twitter, sharing information with their friends. Do you believe that social networking can help job seekers
find jobs and, if so, how can government play a role?
8. Americans are increasingly becoming mobile (over 90% are subscribers according to the CTIA ? the
association for the wireless industry). Do you believe that "Mobile" technology has a role to play
connecting small business with job seekers in your cities and how are you facilitating it?
9. We've talked a lot about job seekers so let's talk about employers now. The vast majority of jobs in the
United States emanate from small businesses. How can Mayors / Cities support a small business in an
increasingly "Mobile" & "Social" world?
10. Governing in today's world is becoming more and more challenging but how can we as leaders
promote a community based technology solution to create better matches for all of our constituents and
business alike?
LET'S PLAN TO MEET AS A GROUP IN THE SESSION ROOM BY 1 PM ON FRIDAY JUNE 1, 2012.

Hi Alisha,
No need for apologies, I completely understand. I just want to give you the context for why
I've been unable to lock down a time. Mayor Johnson is the First VP of this organization and
as such he is part of the sessions and also has separate meetings such as the board of
directors and others that he has to take. So his schedule is back-to-back for the most part.
Also, because the conference is running a little behind schedule I can't be certain when he
will even have time in between sessions. That's why I am unable to confirm. I would like to
communicate this to Robin so he understands the full situation because I feel badly that
we've been unable to secure a meeting time. Should I email him directly or would one of you
rather do it? Just let me know.

ALL,
We are very excited about the NCBM event this week In Atlanta, GA! (See
attached AD that will be in the NCBM Convention guide)!

Especially around our session: Mayors, Social Media & Jobs:


Mayors, Social Media and #JOBS
Social media is not the way of the future, it is the way of now. According to an
August, 2011 Pew Internet Research Report, over 65% of online adults use
social networking sites. As Mayors across the country are discovering, the 21st
century is one of the greatest periods in the history of the world in which to
govern because of ground-breaking technology and communications tools.
Through social media tools like Facebook and Twitter, Mayors can
communicate with constituents and key audiences instantly and frequently.
Innovative leaders are realizing that social media?s impact extends beyond
just communication and that social media can be used to address major social
problems, including one of the biggest problems facing every Mayor today:
#JOBS.
Despite the reports we hear in the media about the unemployment rate
dropping or staying constant, we know that there are jobs in our cities. Local
employers are hiring every day. New businesses are opening and existing
businesses are expanding. The key is to connect these job opportunities with
constituent job seekers. Key city leaders from two major American cities will
discuss how they are embracing social media to connect their constituent job
seekers with small, medium and large businesses.
Do you wish you had a technology platform to power your jobs creation
initiatives and campaigns? Do you wish you had better data to understand
exactly what the jobs situation is in your city, the number of job seekers and
number of opportunities, and details about exactly what and where those
opportunities are? Are you interested in strengthening your city?s image
nationally and internationally to attract new citizens and businesses to move to
the area? Are you looking to promote local and regional businesses? Join this
session and hear from two of America?s great cities as to how technology, and
specifically social media, is helping to address these issues so they can put
Americans in their city back to work!
The current Agenda can be located on at the NCBM Website:

their job search?
7. In recent years there have been 2 huge technology advances beyond the
Internet - first social media and now mobile. I want to talk about social media
first. More than 1 billion people use Facebook and Twitter, sharing
information with their friends. Do you believe that social networking can help
job seekers find jobs and, if so, how can government play a role?
8. Americans are increasingly becoming mobile (over 90% are subscribers
according to the CTIA ? the association for the wireless industry). Do you
believe that "Mobile" technology has a role to play connecting small business
with job seekers in your cities and how are you facilitating it?
9. We've talked a lot about job seekers so let's talk about employers now. The
vast majority of jobs in the United States emanate from small businesses. How
can Mayors / Cities support a small business in an increasingly "Mobile" &
"Social" world?
10. Governing in today's world is becoming more and more challenging but
how can we as leaders promote a community based technology solution to
create better matches for all of our constituents and business alike?
LET'S PLAN TO MEET AS A GROUP IN THE SESSION ROOM BY 1 PM ON FRIDAY
JUNE 1, 2012.

Hi Alisha,
No need for apologies, I completely understand. I just want to give you the context
for why I've been unable to lock down a time. Mayor Johnson is the First VP of this
organization and as such he is part of the sessions and also has separate meetings
such as the board of directors and others that he has to take. So his schedule is
back-to-back for the most part. Also, because the conference is running a little
behind schedule I can't be certain when he will even have time in between sessions.
That's why I am unable to confirm. I would like to communicate this to Robin so he
understands the full situation because I feel badly that we've been unable to secure
a meeting time. Should I email him directly or would one of you rather do it? Just
let me know.

Hi Mariah and Alisha:

Not knowing the lay out, how about we tell them to meet at the entrance to the
President's Luncheon once it concludes tomorrow at 1:00pm. Alan Williams,
who works with us, ran into Mayor Johnson yesterday. He said he will introduce
them.

Thanks for your message. It is difficult to confirm a time at this point, but we
can aim for sometime after the President's Luncheon concludes tomorrow at

ALL,
We are very excited about the NCBM event this week In Atlanta, GA! (See
attached AD that will be in the NCBM Convention guide)!
Especially around our session: Mayors, Social Media & Jobs:
Mayors, Social Media and #JOBS
Social media is not the way of the future, it is the way of now. According to an
August, 2011 Pew Internet Research Report, over 65% of online adults use
social networking sites. As Mayors across the country are discovering, the 21st
century is one of the greatest periods in the history of the world in which to
govern because of ground-breaking technology and communications tools.
Through social media tools like Facebook and Twitter, Mayors can

communicate with constituents and key audiences instantly and frequently.


Innovative leaders are realizing that social media?s impact extends beyond
just communication and that social media can be used to address major social
problems, including one of the biggest problems facing every Mayor today:
#JOBS.
Despite the reports we hear in the media about the unemployment rate
dropping or staying constant, we know that there are jobs in our cities. Local
employers are hiring every day. New businesses are opening and existing
businesses are expanding. The key is to connect these job opportunities with
constituent job seekers. Key city leaders from two major American cities will
discuss how they are embracing social media to connect their constituent job
seekers with small, medium and large businesses.
Do you wish you had a technology platform to power your jobs creation
initiatives and campaigns? Do you wish you had better data to understand
exactly what the jobs situation is in your city, the number of job seekers and
number of opportunities, and details about exactly what and where those
opportunities are? Are you interested in strengthening your city?s image
nationally and internationally to attract new citizens and businesses to move to
the area? Are you looking to promote local and regional businesses? Join this
session and hear from two of America?s great cities as to how technology, and
specifically social media, is helping to address these issues so they can put
Americans in their city back to work!
The current Agenda can be located on at the NCBM Website:

SPONSOR: TWEETMYJOBS
BRENDAN M. COTTER, SVP, Market Development

Mr. Cotter is responsible for the development and strategic direction of the
TweetMyJobs Government Platform for jobs. By harnessing the power of the
Internet, social network and mobile into a branded and dedicated jobs
platform, government can promote and enable connectivity between local
businesses that have employment opportunities for their constituents.
Through this innovative new technology, elected and community leaders can
create a hub where job seekers and businesses can come together so that
open positions are filled with top local talent thus enhancing the economic
well being of the communities.
Previously, Mr. Cotter was the senior vice president of market development at

Blackboard Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBB). He focused on the initiatives for the next


generation of notification and alerts technology, with an emphasis on
proximity and CMAS (cell broadcasting alerts). Prior, as president of
Blackboard Connect for Government, he led Blackboard Connect (formerly The
NTI Group) to be the number one provider of hosted, time-sensitive mass
notification services focused on assisting K12 leaders, government and civil
leaders to communicate quickly and efficiently with their constituents using
multi-modal technologies.
Mr. Cotter has an extensive background in developing and managing new
business expansion, client management, sales, and market strategy. Previous
to joining the NTI team, Mr. Cotter was a founder and chief executive officer
of the F2F Group, Inc., a leading business and technology process consultancy
firm.
FORMAT:
MODERATOR:
MAYOR STEVE BENJAMIN, Columbia, South Carolina
In a record turnout, Steve Benjamin was elected Mayor of Columbia in April of
2010.
He has worked very actively in community initiatives with numerous public and
private organizations dating back to his years at the University of South
Carolina where he served as President of the Student Government and as
Student Bar Association President at the USC School of Law.
Mayor Benjamin has continued that service through the present, serving on
numerous boards for nonprofit organizations such as the Columbia Urban
League, Benedict College, the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce and as
a Founding Board Member of the Eau Claire Promise Zone. He also served as a
founding member of Choose Children First.
In 1999, at age 29 Benjamin was appointed to Governor Jim Hodges' Cabinet
as director of the state's second largest law enforcement agency, the
Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services.
In 2009, Benjamin drew national attention by representing prominent radio
host Tom Joyner and securing a pardon for Joyner's great uncles wrongfully
convicted in the death of a 73-year-old Confederate veteran and executed in
1913. In a landmark decision, the South Carolina Board of Paroles and Pardons
voted unanimously to grant the posthumous pardon, the first for South
Carolina in a capital case.

Having taken office in July 2010, Mayor Benjamin's first term has been
characterized by his firm belief in Columbia's potential and the intense focus
on economic development and job creation that has helped secure more than
$1.1 billion in regional capital investment and create thousands new jobs in
the midst of a national recession. Combined with the rebirth of Main Street,
these accomplishments have drawn national attention and accolades including
his being awarded an Aspen Rodel Fellowship, elected to the U.S. Conference
of Mayors Advisory Board and, most recently, being named one of The
Washington Post's "2011 The Root 100 List: The 100 most influential African
Americans in 2011."
In addition to his work as Mayor, Benjamin practices law with Ogletree,
Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart.
He is married to the Honorable DeAndrea Gist Benjamin, a circuit court judge
in South Carolina's Fifth Judicial Circuit. The two are the proud parents of two
daughters Bethany (7) and Jordan Grace (4).
