Event Description:
The Baruch School of Public Affairs is pleased to once again partner with City & State to present this program.

Welcoming Remarks: Hon. Letitia A. James, New York City Public Advocate

Opening Remarks: Jay Hershenson, Senior Vice Chancellor, City University of New York

After the dust has settled from campaign season and the political narrative begins the slow, grinding transition into governing, public policy experts, business leaders and New York City government officials discuss how the landscape has shifted in city government, and if we are heading in the right direction.

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC -- but you must RSVP

The focus is on three areas which will see the biggest movement in 2014:

9:00 am – Planes, Trains and Taxicabs, Getting In, Out and Around New York City. With a shift in New York City government, Governor Cuomo’s attempt to assume control of New York City airports, a host of large scale transit related projects underway, and the upstart app related car services, New York City is set to go through another round of dramatic transit changes. What will this mean for the New York City resident and tourists.

10:00 am – Healthcare for NYC’s Most Vulnerable Populations. So much of last year’s campaign was about healthcare and inequality, with a focus on NYC’s most vulnerable residents having ample access to care. Our panel of health care experts, related government officials and advocates discuss what changes can be implemented, with a focus on underprivileged NYC children and seniors access to affordable care.

11:00 am – Arrested Development: Developing in the New NYC. With the exit of 3 term Mayor and businessman Michael Bloomberg, the incoming City government has indicated there need to be a clear break from the previous administration. Our panel of public policy gurus and public officials talk everything from midtown east, to the rise of development on outer borough waterfront, and how best we can develop responsibly while maintaining access to affordable housing.

LOCATION: The event will be held at 151 East 25th Street, 7th Floor
