Recap

Watch the Video: Urban Talks with Michael Nutter: Getting Stuff Done in a Big City

Join Penn IUR and Social Policy and Practice for the second of three urban talks with Senior Fellow, Michael Nutter, Former Mayor of the City of Philadelphia to discuss, "Getting Stuff Done in a Big City: From Daily Duties to Crisis Management". For any successful mayor, the snow must be removed, traffic burdens must be relieved, water must be drinkable. Problem-solving pragmatism is essential, and as a successful two-term mayor, Michael Nutter will share his experiences in making things work better than they had before. He will also discuss why mayoring holds more satisfactions and potential achievements than our fractious American political system would have us believe. He knows what the ingredients for effective local politics are, how better to combine them, and how to put them to maximum use.
