De Blasio, Other Mayors-Elect to Visit White House

NEW YORK (AP) -

New York City’s Bill de Blasio will on Friday join 16 other newly elected mayors at the White House to discuss urban issues with President Barack Obama. De Blasio said Thursday that he “shares a lot of values” with Obama, who endorsed him and who last week delivered a speech devoted to income inequality — a prime campaign theme of de Blasio’s.
