A trip to Washington D.C. Has lead to some National attention for the Grand Forks Mayor.

While Mayor Michael Brown may be more familiar with his surroundings in Grand Forks, he has spent some time at the National level. A trip to the Annual Mayors Conference to discuss solutions and problems for all communities and a visit to the White House landed him on page A14 of the New York Times.

"It was fun to see that picture in fact I went to the person with the paper and I says, "can I have this page, my picture is on it" and he goes, ya. Then he saw it and gave it to me, so it was kind of a shock," reminisces Mayor Brown.

The Mayor says he just happened to have a good seat at the meeting.

So far no one locally has commented on the picture.

He says overall it was a good meeting.
