Richard Kos Joins 24 Other Newly Elected Mayors at Harvard

kosCAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — More than two dozen newly-elected American mayors are gathering at Harvard University next week for a three-day leadership conference.

The seminar on Transition and Leadership for Newly Elected Mayors, co-sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, will run from Wednesday (Dec. 4) until Friday (Dec. 6) at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Institute Director Trey Grayson says the seminar is an opportunity for new city leaders to engage with and learn from academics, policy experts and political practitioners on the urgent issues and complex challenges of governing today.

The newly elected mayors will participate in a variety of sessions that include transitioning from the campaign to office, finance and administration, jobs and the economy, public safety, education and technology.

Marty Walsh of Boston and Bill Carpenter of Brockton, Mass. are part of the group as well.
