New York City saw unprecedented events in 2008, and the effects of those events will be felt for years. Will New York City face another fiscal crisis, 1970s-style? Will the City be forced to cut services or increase taxes, or both? What will happen to tourism? To crime? To education? To the long term vision for New York that Mayor Bloomberg outlined in PlaNYC?

Please join the Wagner community and expert panelists on New York City government for a discussion on the long and short term impacts, as outlined in the State of the City address and FY2009 budget, of Mayor Bloomberg’s agenda for New York City in 2009. This is an event not to be missed - the Mayor’s 2009 plan will greatly impact every sector and citizen in New York City.

Panelists include:
- Larian Angelou, Deputy Director of the New York City Office of Management and Budget
- Charles Brecher, NYU Wagner Professor of Public and Health Administration; Research Director for the Citizens Budget Commission

- Frankie Edozien, NYU Carter Institute Professor of Journalism; Former City Hall Reporter for the New York Post
- Preston Niblack, Director of Finance, New York City Council

- Doug Turetsky, Communications Director for New York City's Independent Budget Office


Moderated by Mitchell Moss, Henry Hart Rice Professor of Urban Policy and Planning at NYU Wagner
