Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
Dan S weat
When John F e ild was in town Thursday,
discussed with him the
role which I could best play in assisting the
ban Coalition. As
I discussed it with you before, it was my feeling
t there was
no reason why I should attend all the working sub-co
ittee meetings
of the Co a lition in Washington and that John Gunther and John Feild
could represent you and the other Mayors involved without specific
repr esentation from each Mayor.
We are in agreement on this point and I will not attend any routine ·
working sessions but only those where my attendance is absolutely
necessary. He will keep in touch with me on any points where
your individual recommendations are needed.
He has asked that I act as liaison with e ight or ten Southern cities
list ed as key participants i n the Urban Coalition. Th ese are:
Atlanta, Little Rock, Savannah, Charlotte, Chattanoo ga, Nashville,
Galveston and Miami. My role would be to maintain contact with
the Mayor and/or his key representative in e ach one of these cities
with the immediate task of enco ura g ing their participation in the
O ctober 17 planning meeting for local coalitions in Chicago.
This would involve some telephone calls during the ne x t two weeks.
I belie ve this type participation at this point would be better than
trying to attend meetings every week in W a shington.
I would appr e ciate your thinking on this matter.
