Economic Development, Public Safety Top Issues for Nation’s Mayors, According to National League of Cities Report
Economic Development Remains Most Critical Issue for Third Consecutive YearFor the third consecutive year, economic development remained the top issue for the nation’s mayors, according to a comprehensive analysis of mayoral state of the city speeches released today by the National League of Cities (NLC). In the 2016 State of the Cities report, which examines state of the city speeches in 100 cities representing a diverse cross section of population sizes and geographic regions, public safety replaced infrastructure as the second most-discussed issue. The state of the city speech is a mayor’s opportunity to reflect on their city’s recent accomplishments, address current challenges and present a roadmap for the future.
What Works Cities (WWC) invites cities to apply to be part of a national Bloomberg Philanthropies initiative to help American cities better use data and evidence to drive decision-making and improve residents’ lives. WWC will be working with 100 cities with populations between 100,000 and 1 million people who are committed to improving the way they use data in governance and service delivery.
