The newly-installed president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors says Washington has abandoned the nation's cities.

Miami Mayor Manny Diaz says America's next president should have an urban agenda that focuses on crime, poverty, the arts, infrastructure and the environment.

Tuesday In Philadelphia, mayors launched a five-city series of forums to develop an agenda for the presdient's first 100 days.

Mayor Diaz, who was born in Cuba, told CBN News what the Latino community is looking for in the next president.

"In reality, people in my community suffer from high oil prices, and gasoline prices. They're losing their homes. They're losing their jobs," he said. "we all suffer from that. We're all looking for solutions to those those problems."

Diaz, a registered Independent, supported Hillary Clinton, and has declined so far to endorse Barack Obama.
