Former Gov. Jim Hunt and mayors from across the state will gather in Charlotte to discuss the challenges they face and how Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama could help them if he is elected.
Eight mayors, including Durham's Bill Bell, Winston-Salem's Allen Joines, Asheville's Terry Bellamy and Yvonne Johnson of Greensboro will join Hunt on Tuesday for a news conference at the Charlotte Convention Center.
The Obama campaign lists 47 mayors, former mayors and mayors pro-tem as having endorsed the Illinois senator.
