Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster will join a delegation of about 15 big-city mayors to seek help from U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's transition team on urban policy issues, a city official said on Wednesday.

A select group from the U.S. Conference of Mayors, of which Foster is a member, is expected to address urban policy matters with senior members of Obama's staff on Thursday in Chicago, according to Becki Ames, the mayor's chief of staff.

Although other specifics about the meeting were not available, the Conference of Mayors has announced that its members are seeking an audience to advance its interests in the so-called Main Street Economic Stimulus Plan being debated in U.S. Congress.

Long Beach, a port city near Los Angeles, is the fifth-largest city in California. The city is requesting nearly 500 million dollars from the package aimed at jump-starting the economy with public works projects.
