Chicago Council on Global Affairs: Why Mayors Are Now Running the World

At a time of gridlock and division in Washington, DC, mayors are setting their own agenda and taking local action on immigration, education, infrastructure, and the environment. The role of mayors has now extended beyond city limits into the national political stage. Former mayors Pete Buttigieg and Michael Bloomberg climbing in the polls in the Democratic primaries is a great example of mayors scaling up the political agenda. Fifty-fifth Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, argues that cities have become today’s true centers of effective governance and will discuss why he thinks mayors now run the world. Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Conference Center, McCormick Foundation Hall, 130 E. Randolph St., Chicago. Thursday, March 12, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm.
