PROGRAM NEWS

We will remember these two pandemic graduations and appreciate how fortunate we are to finally gather together in person.

If we are successful in modernizing our economy and greening our infrastructure, and if we do this in a way that expands opportunity, then New York City should seamlessly regain its symbolic and actual place in our economy and in our consciousness.

 

The presence of a competent national government capable of investment in the future will enable environmentally sustainable economic growth.
