BALTIMORE (AP) - Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is expected to call on America’s mayors to make their voices heard as the nation picks its next president.

In her inaugural address as the leader of the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Monday in San Francisco, Rawlings-Blake is expected to discuss an effort to make cities’ concerns, including issues such as community policing and jobs, a priority in the election.

The mayor plans to unveil a document outlining solutions for challenges cities face in September when mayors meet in Baltimore for an annual leadership meeting. Rawlings-Blake says the document, called the “Baltimore Compact,” is meant to ensure that Baltimore and other cities drive the agenda.
