Mayors & Cities Magazine and Marketwired Partner in News Distribution Agreement

Real-Time Marketwired Newsfeed Provides News and Announcements on Website Devoted to Information Sharing Between Cities, Their Leaders, Residents and Businesses

TORONTO--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) -  Mayors & Cities Magazines, a groundbreaking website launched in October 2010 by Mayors & Cities, Inc., providing news for local government and community influencers, and global newswire and communications solution provider Marketwired entered into a distribution agreement to feature a live Marketwired newsfeed on the site. This communication portal promises to open new doors for Marketwired clients who do business on a local level. One of the site's goals is to highlight local news and stories coming from cities and municipalities and through articles generated from news agencies, cities and media outlets. The site also functions as an information tool that facilitates the exchange of experience and knowledge among mayors and cities around the world and to the general public.

Bernadette Lee, Marketwired Vice President, Global Partners and Media Solutions, said, "We are excited at the potential this new distribution outlet offers our clients who want to increase their visibility in specific localities -- such as in front of individuals who keep a vigilant eye on developments impacting local governments as well as those simply looking for travel information. We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with Mayors & Cities Magazine."

Readers and subscribers of Mayors & Cities Magazine, an audience that extends to its website, include a wide range of elected officials and professionals within state and local governments as well as journalists, academics, advocates, activists and companies that do business with state, city and local government markets. Among the topics Mayors & Cities explores are infrastructures, transport, urban development, health, education, economy, the fight against climate change, promoting renewable energy, employment, safety, waste management and sanitation, and the fight against poverty.

According to John Lyndon, President and Editor-In-Chief of Mayors & Cities Magazine, "Our new website is an information tool that easily facilitates the exchange of experience and knowledge and gives greater visibility to the actions of mayors and other elected officials -- precisely what we need today as local governments search for solutions to major problems so many are facing. The Marketwired newsfeed will add significantly to this rich source of information and ideas."
