press conference, NCBM President and Kansas City Mayor Emanuel Cleaver led a bi-partisan delegation of mayors representing cities and towns from each section of the country to release a resolution adopted by the organization urging "the Democratic and Republican National Committees to refuse to engage in or condone the use of race as a divisive tool of political campaigning."
Fowler wrote separate letters with similar words of encouragement and support for NCBM and its call for racial harmony.
Mayor Cleaver said NCBM hopes the two parties "join to make the election of 1996 a referendum on ideas and vision, and not another exercise in polarization of our society."
With the presidential election just a little over 90 days away and heating up via media coverage and paid television commercials and advertising, NCBM is "trying to be pro-active rather than reactive," said Mayor James Garner from Hempstead Long Island.
"The Southeast has 284 of the 480 mayors we have today," says Michelle Kourouma, executive director of the NCBM
. "Well over half of our total number are in what used to be the dominant slave-holding states."
According to NCBM
President Robert Ingram, the group's approach must include registering massive numbers of voters to ensure voting strength when it's time to go to the polls in 1996.
The meeting also approved the salaries of data entry operators, NCBMS
entry operators and other employees.
