Public Management and the Lindsay Years

Thursday, September 30

The second day’s program will explore efforts to increase access to health services and to remove the gap that existed between community concerns about service delivered and the agency leadership responsible for providing them. In addition, the session will explore how the innovations undertaken influence subsequent City administration. Topics include the reorganization of Health and Addiction Services under Gordon Chase; the decentralization of management and services; comparative perspectives on all the mayoral administrations from Lindsay to Bloomberg; and future management challenges. Participants include: Ken Auletta; Stanley Brezenoff; Herb Elish; Lew Feldstein; Jim Kagen; Joan Leiman; Bob Newman; Norman Steisel; Joe Viteritti; and others.
