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 the opportunities for improvement? Join our panel of experts to discuss these realities and look ahead to year two of Mayor de Blasio’s administration.
