Mayor’s Marshall Plan for Middle America Roundtable

The status quo is no longer acceptable. Mayors in the Appalachian region made that clear earlier this year when they presented the Marshall Plan for Middle America, which aims to establish a new regional and federal collaboration to reinvigorate and revive the economic competitiveness of the regions. In this roundtable discussion, mayors will discuss their plan in-depth with former mayors and chart out a path for their cities to achieve great success for 2030 and beyond.
