Washington (WSYR-TV) - Ithaca's mayor spent a little time at the White House on Thursday talking about how to boost manufacturing nationwide.

Svante Myrick is one of a couple dozen mayors invited to the "Mayors Manufacturing Summit" Thursday afternoon.

He met with members of the White House and from the private sector.

President Obama, however, was not in attendance.

Myrick says the summit is especially important for Ithaca, as it works with Cornell and Ithaca College to not only add jobs, but expand in different areas like nanotechnology and advanced energy.
