Three NYU Wagner Faculty Members Appointed to Participate in NYC Mayor-elect's Transition Process
Three NYU Wagner faculty members have agreed to lend their public-policy expertise to Mayor-elect Eric Adams’ transition process.
NYU Wagner's Dean and Professor of Public Service Sherry Glied was appointed to the transition's health committee; Clinical Professor of Public Service Martha Stark was named to the budget committee, and Clinical Professor of Urban Planning and Public Service Neil Kleiman will serve on the technology committee.
In announcing his expansive transition advisory group, Adams said: “This unprecedented collection of great minds and hard-working New Yorkers will prepare my administration for success because they represent the many backgrounds and views of our great city, and they are committed to working together toward its bright future….
“If we are going to tackle the many challenges in front of us as a city, the advocacy, nonprofit, and business worlds must all be at the same table, working in collaboration--and that is exactly what this transition is doing. And the transition of this city to a safer, healthier, more prosperous New York will continue after January 1st—so I hope to continue to lean on this group of experts and advocates after I have taken office."
