Sponsored by NYU Wagner, the US Conference of Mayors, and the David Bohnett Foundation.
In the face of uncertain and vacillating support from the federal government, local governments are uniquely positioned to find innovative solutions to today's toughest problems. A growing number of mayors are stepping up and driving creative and dynamic, urban transformation across the US.
Join NYU Wagner, the United States Conference of Mayors, and the David Bohnett Foundation for a lively and timely discussion with a panel of leading mayors. They will discuss how they're changing their respective cities to meet today’s challenges—bringing forth big, bold, and inventive ideas. The moderated conversation will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
The event – the Second Annual Urban Transportation Forum: Mayors Changing Cities – is free and open to the public and will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13., at NYU Wagner, 295 Lafayette St., (corner of Houston St.), 2nd FL, New York, N.Y. 10012. Registration is required, while members of the media may instead contact the NYU press officer listed with this release.
Among the mayors participating in the program are: Dan Horrigan, Akron, OH; Becky Ames, Beaumont, TX; John Giles, Mesa, AZ; Gary McCarthy, Schenectady, NY; James Langfelder, Springfield, IL; and Keith James, West Palm Beach, FL.
The moderator will be Gordon J. Campbell, clinical professor of public service and director of EMPA-Public Service Leaders Program at NYU Wagner.
