CAA: DC: The City in the Twenty-First Century

Location:
A conversation with Penn alum/Columbia Professor Michael Nutter former Mayor of the City of Philadelphia Interview conducted by Dr. Samir Meghelli, B.A. UPenn (C‘04) Sociology, M.A.,M.Phil.,Ph.D. Columbia University (GSAS ‘06/‘08/‘12) History In 2007, after serving almost fifteen years on the Philadelphia City Council, Michael A. Nutter became the ninety-eighth mayor of his hometown of Philadelphia. By the end of Nutter's tenure, homicides were at an almost fifty-year low, high-school graduation and college-degree attainment rates increased significantly, many businesses opened up shop in Philadelphia, and Philadelphia's population had grown every year. Join Penn Club of DC and ColumbiaDC, as Mayor/Professor Nutter discusses his run for mayor when he formed a coalition from a base of support that set the stage for a successful term. Nutter's anecdotes, advice, and insights will be sure to inspire anyone with a desire to understand municipal government and with the will to positively change the lives of the people. Social: 6:00pm to 6:30pm (Cash bar, snacks) Interview and Q&A: 6:30pm to 7:45pm Post-Social: 7:45pm to 8:15pm Nutter was elected the 98th Mayor of his hometown in November 2007 and took office in January 2008, after spending 15 years as a member of the Philadelphia City Council. At his inaugural address, Mayor Nutter pledged to lower crime, improve educational attainment rates, make Philadelphia the greenest city in America and attract new businesses and residents to the city. He also promised to lead an ethical and transparent government focused on providing high quality, efficient and effective customer service. With the support of an experienced, professional staff, Mayor Nutter made significant progress on every pledge: homicides were at an almost 50 year low at the end of his tenure; high school graduation and college degree attainment rates increased significantly; Philadelphia added hundreds of miles in bike lanes and trails and launched the first low-income friendly bike share system in America, called Indego; and Philadelphia’s population grew every year since 2008, including the largest percentage of millennial population growth in the nation. He actively recruited businesses to set up shop in Philadelphia, both domestically and internationally with tax reforms, better business services and international trade missions. And, despite the damaging impact of the Great Recession, Philadelphia’s economy demonstrated significant growth—since January 2014, more than $11.5 billion of economic development projects have been completed, are under construction or announced. As a result of Mayor Nutter's commitment to strong financial stewardship, Philadelphia’s credit rating was upgraded to the “A” category by the three major credit rating agencies for the first time since the 1970s.
