Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and the @National Leagues of Cities, an advocacy group that represents the interests of over 1,600 cities, convened municipal legislative leaders to foster inter-city legislative collaboration and tackle issues ranging from infrastructure to constituent outreach to criminal justice reform.

Happy Friday!

In my State of the City speech in February, I talked about coordinating a convening with the National League of Cities (NLC) to discuss common challenges that City Councils across the country are facing. That time has arrived. Today and tomorrow, my counterparts from major cities across the country are meeting to exchange ideas about policy issues, from policing and improving public transportation, to administrative matters like managing budgets and using technology to engage constituents.


3-K for All

This is another important step in our commitment to improving the lives of residents through the expansion of educational opportunities and the exploration of innovative systems of learning, and I am so thrilled to see this initiative begin right here in the South Bronx, which for so long has gone historically overlooked and underfunded.
This program represents a brighter future for local students, and a welcome option for parents in search of additional school choice.
