WASHINGTON -- City mayors are urging President Barack Obama to help create jobs by spending more on infrastructure projects and on worker training programs, areas the president himself says should be protected from efforts to rein in long-term deficits.

The bipartisan group of mayors spent nearly an hour Monday with Obama and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House. The meeting comes in the aftermath of this past weekend's annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
