Nutter racking up air miles

Mayor Nutter spent today in Seattle, where he's attending a three-day U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting that wraps up tomorrow.

Now comes word from his press office that come Sunday morning, he will be leaving the West Coast - and headed straight to San Antonio, Texas, where he will be attending another meeting that last through late Monday. This one is sponsored by the Council on Foundations.

While there, the mayor will be speaking on a panel about the city's mortgage foreclosure program. He will also be meeting with HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan and Ed DeSeve, senior advisor at the White House Office for Management and Budget for Recovery Act implementation.

Here's the press release:

"Mayor Nutter will attend the 2009 Fall Conference for Community Foundations in San Antonio, Texas. The theme of the conference is “Philanthropies Role in Creating Transformative Change from Our Largest Cities to Our Rural Communities”. In response to the Obama administration’s call for a new era of public/philanthropic partnerships, the Council on Foundations is convening its first cross-sector gathering of community leaders who are engaged in transforming America’s cities. A diverse group of city leaders will jointly address the role of public/philanthropic partnerships in bringing about change. Mayor Nutter will discuss Philadelphia's Mortgage Foreclosure Protection Program as a national model for keeping families across the country in their homes."
