WASHINGTON -- The nation's big-city mayors, saying cities have been ignored too long by Congress, President Bush and presidential candidates, plan to stage a march on Washington next month to call attention to the plight of urban America.
"I never saw such low regard for urban America," says Boston Mayor Raymond Flynn, who was to be here today to announce the May 16 march. "I think the Washington attitude is completely out of touch with working families and the needy."
"They just don't get it," says Mr. Flynn, president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. "They ought to put up a sign, 'We're out to lunch,' right out there at the Capitol."
