With Dixon headed out, Baltimore back on Obama invite list

Baltimore City Council President Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was among a delegation from the U.S. Conference of Mayors invited to the White House this afternoon.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden spoke to the group about the administration's urban policy and its plans to generate jobs in cities and towns across the country.

The delegation of mayors in the East Room wasn't exactly an exclusive group: More than 200 names were on the guest list, from around the country and even from outside the U.S.

Rawlings-Blake was the only Marylander on the list, which the White House released earlier today (and also the only person on that roster identified as a council president, not mayor).

The invitation that was extended to Baltimore's next mayor was significant in at least one regard: Mayor Sheila Dixon had been cold-shouldered by Obama because the Baltimore Democrat was under indictment (and, of course, ultimately convicted).

Dixon did meet with Obama in Chicago before she was indicted. And she even made arrangements to fly from Florida to Washington to attend last year's Conference of Mayors event with the president (however, the invitation was withdrawn after The Baltimore Sun called the White House to double-check on the decision to put Dixon on the invite list).

Full list of mayors (and one council president) after the jump.
