In the third year of his administration, Newark Mayor Cory Booker continues to learn new lessons about creating a culture of accountability in government. How do urban leaders inculcate new values and entrepreneurial passion in city bureaucracies that have long been unmovable, dependent on political appointments and patronage? What can other cities learn from Newark’s experience? And what challenges remain for civic reform in Newark?
With: Hon. Cory Booker, Mayor, City of Newark, NJ
Panel discussion: Paula Franzese, Professor, Seton Hall School of Law Celia King, Executive Director, Leadership Newark, Inc. Harry Pozycki, Chair, Center for Civic Responsibility Michelle Thomas, Business Administrator, City of Newark, NJ
