De Blasio Administration: Freshman Year Report Card

Tuesday, Feb 24, 2015

A year ago, Bill de Blasio won the NYC mayoral election handily with an impressive campaign touting progressive change. Appealing to a shrinking middle class, his platform promised to address income disparity, universal pre-K, more affordable housing, and build on his predecessor’s environmental programs.

Consistent with his progressive platform, ‘City and State’ - the mayor’s first Management Report focuses on equity, equality and opportunity, and shows mixed results in meeting his early goals. After his first year on the job, how does the mayor’s performance compare to the promise of his campaign? What are the early lessons learned and where are there opportunities for improvement? Join our panel of experts to discuss these realities and look ahead to year two of Mayor de Blasio’s administration.

Sponsor: Sustainability Practice Network (SPN)

Date: February 24, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Location: NYU Stern School of Business, 44 West 4th Street, Room KMC 1-100

Speakers: Marcia Bystryn, Executive Director - New York League of Conservation Voters; Steve Cohen, Executive Director - Columbia Earth Institute; Donna De Constanzo, Senior Attorney - Natural Resources Defense Council; & Darren Suarez, Director of Government Affairs - The Business Council of New York State
