Hunter College Schools
Roosevelt House is honored to present what promises to be a news-making, one-on-one discussion with Mayor Bill de Blasio as he nears the end of his eight years at City Hall. The Mayor will be in conversation with Joseph P. Viteritti, the Thomas Hunter Professor of Public Policy at Hunter College. Viteritti is the author of the most comprehensive book on Bill de Blasio to date, and is a leading expert on mayoral leadership in New York City.
Reflecting on the Mayor’s consequential two terms in office, the discussion will address the most important and definitive challenges and accomplishments of his mayoralty—and touch on what Mr. de Blasio foresees for the future of the City, and his own political career.
Hon. Bill de Blasio has served since 2014 as the 109th Mayor of New York. From 2010 to 2013, he held the office of New York City Public Advocate and, and for eight years before that, he was a member of the New York City Council from Brooklyn. In 2020, he was a candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomination.
Joseph P. Viteritti is the Thomas Hunter Professor of Public Policy, Chair of the Hunter College Urban Policy and Planning Department, Founding Faculty Chair of the Roosevelt House Public Policy Program, and author of The Pragmatist: Bill de Blasio’s Quest to Save the Soul of New York along with other acclaimed books on New York’s mayors.
