Antonio Villaraigosa will be among 230 mayors introducing a civility accord today at the 79th Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. and he's packed in quite a few meetings while he's in our nation's capitol, according to the Daily Breeze.

His appearances include a news conference with fellow mayors and Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass. to support the Community Development Block Grants program, a meeting with Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va. of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and a meeting with Rep. David Dreier, R-San Dimas, chairman of the House Rules Committee.

He'll then meet with President Barack Obama on Friday.

Though hundreds of mayors will be in D.C. for three days of meetings focused on job creation, this will be Villaraigosa's 3rd visit to Washington in four months. Hmmm...
