City of Atlanta
City of Atlanta
A daughter of Atlanta, Mayor Bottoms strives to continue the City’s progress as a global business hub, while also building a city that stands as a national model for equity and inclusion. With a six-point focus on affordability, public health and safety, transportation, education, criminal justice reform, and economic and workforce development, Mayor Bottoms is committed to leading Atlanta to becoming a recognized leader in both commerce and compassion.
Within her first 100 days, Mayor Bottoms implemented sweeping reforms that would improve lives and transform the trajectory of Atlanta’s future. As part of her commitment to strengthening public education for all of Atlanta’s children, Mayor Bottoms transferred deeds for 31 properties to Atlanta Public Schools. Tackling criminal justice reform, Mayor Bottoms signed an ordinance to eliminate the use of cash bonds for low level, low income offenders. Mayor Bottoms also announced a $9 million, citywide anti-displacement initiative to expand affordable housing opportunities for low income residents as part of her $1 billion public-private equity and affordability plan. Doubling down on her commitment to maintaining an affordable Atlanta, Mayor Bottoms, in partnership with the Westside Future Fund, announced the Anti-Displacement Tax Fund, which will pay any property tax increases for qualifying homeowners in the City’s historic Westside communities.
Michelangelo Dress Selling Michelangelo Cocktail Selling Dress Cocktail Working to improve access to parks and public spaces for all Atlantans, Mayor Bottoms most recently executed a historic public property purchase, acquiring the land needed to complete the Atlanta BeltLine’s Southside Trail. This $26 million investment will connect the Eastside of the BeltLine to the Westside for the first time in the trail’s history – providing greater access to transit options and world-class greenspace for residents.
Only the second woman to be elected to Atlanta’s highest office, Mayor Bottoms was designated a “Woman to Watch in 2018” by Viacom’s BET Network. She has also been profiled by Atlanta Magazine, Ebony Magazine and Politico Magazine, where she was named “the most prominent black female executive in the South – and one of the few in the entire country”.
A lifelong public servant, Mayor Bottoms previously served as a lawyer, judge, City Councilmember, and Executive Director of the Atlanta-Fulton County Recreation Authority (AFCRA), where she spearheaded the sale and $350 million planned redevelopment of Turner Field, formerly home to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games and Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves.
A product of the Atlanta Public School System, Mayor Bottoms graduated from Frederick Douglass High School and went on to receive her undergraduate degree from Florida A&M University. She earned her Juris Doctorate from Georgia State University College of Law.
An active member of the community, Mayor Bottoms is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, the Atlanta Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, the Dogwood City Chapter of The Links, Inc., and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She has also served on the Board of Families First, where she shares her personal story of adoption, and advocates on behalf of adoption and foster care.
Mayor Bottom resides in Southwest Atlanta with her husband, Derek W. Bottoms, their four children – Lance, Langston, Lennox and Lincoln, and their family dog, Logan.

City of Chicago
Rahm Emanuel was elected the 55th mayor of the City of Chicago on February 22nd, 2011 and was sworn in on May 16th, 2011. He was elected to a second term in 2015 and sworn in on May 18th, 2015.
In his first year in office, Mayor Emanuel announced the redeployment of over 1,000 officers to Chicago’s neighborhoods and secured more than 20,000 private-sector jobs for residents across the city. Facing a $635 million fiscal shortfall, Mayor Emanuel led the passage of a unanimous budget containing reforms and investments to ensure Chicago’s financial future. He then pushed for education reforms allowing for elementary students to gain an extra hour and 15 minutes every day and two additional weeks every year, and all-day pre-kindergarten for students in every part of the city. Additionally, Mayor Emanuel launched Building a New Chicago, a $7 billion coordinated infrastructure plan that will revitalize the city’s roads, rails, and runways.
At the onset of his second term, Mayor Emanuel laid out more comprehensive initiatives for the betterment of Chicago through investment and innovation in its neighborhoods from city services to economic development. Over the last year and a half, more than forty corporations have moved or announced their intent to move to Chicago bringing thousands of jobs. Through the Building on Burnham Plan the City has built or refurbished more than 300 playgrounds across communities and added more park and green space to underserved areas. Mayor Emanuel has also taken important steps to connect all communities and law enforcement through increased transparency and accountability, and improved communication. The Healthy Chicago 2.0 Plan addresses citywide disparities and connects residents to vital services and information across city departments and agencies and Mayor Emanuel has marked record progress in reducing the structural deficit to $137.6 million for 2017 – the lowest it has been since 2007.
Prior to becoming Mayor, Emanuel served as the White House Chief of Staff in President Barack Obama’s administration. Before accepting the position as Chief of Staff to the President, Emanuel served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Chicago’s 5th District. Prior to being elected to Congress, Emanuel served as a key member of the Clinton White House from 1993 to 1998, rising to serve as Senior Advisor to the President for Policy and Strategy.
Mayor Emanuel graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in 1981 and received a Master’s Degree in Speech and Communication from Northwestern University in 1985. He is married to Amy Rule, and they have three children, Zach, Ilana, and Leah.

Bill de Blasio
City of New York
Since assuming office in 2014, the de Blasio administration has developed and executed transformative initiatives including Pre-K for All; Paid Sick Leave; neighborhood policing; IDNYC; and Housing New York, the largest, most ambitious affordable housing plan in the nation.
As the Mayor’s second term begins, crime is at historic lows and police and communities are coming together. Student test scores are up citywide and the graduation rate has never been higher. A five-borough economy has emerged, with a record number of jobs. New York is building or preserving affordable apartments at a pace not seen in decades and the city is ahead of its commitment to cut greenhouse emissions 80 percent by 2050.
But there is much more to do and Mayor de Blasio has pledged to work tirelessly to make this the fairest big city in America. This includes deepening neighborhood policing and further reducing crime; adding 3-K to our school system; increasing the original affordable housing goals by 100,000 apartments; and creating 100,000 good-paying jobs.
Mayor de Blasio will also continue to be an outspoken progressive voice on issues that touch the lives of his fellow New Yorkers, including: income inequality, early childhood education, immigration reform, infrastructure, and voting rights. These issues of basic fairness for every New Yorker have animated Mayor de Blasio’s life and career across three decades of activism and public service.
Bill de Blasio was born on May 8, 1961 in Manhattan and raised in Cambridge, MA. He is a graduate of New York University and Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. He began his career in public service in 1989 as part of David N. Dinkins’ successful and historic mayoral campaign and worked in the Dinkins Administration.
Over the next decade, Mr. de Blasio served as regional director at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; as a school board member for Brooklyn School District 15; and as head of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s historic campaign in 2000 for the U.S. Senate.
In 2002, Mr. de Blasio joined the New York City Council, representing Brooklyn’s 39th district. During his two terms, Mr. de Blasio fought to improve public education, expand affordable housing, protect tenants’ rights, and reform social services for families and children. Elected Public Advocate in 2009, he pursued fairness for tenants, taxpayers, and students.
Mr. de Blasio has been happily married to Chirlane McCray, the First Lady of New York City, since 1994. They are the proud parents of Chiara and Dante.

In Newark, a big step toward an ever-connected urban reality was covering a two-mile stretch of downtown with free, outdoor public 400 mbps Wi-Fi — many times faster than what most Americans get in their homes. That allows anyone to sit in Military Park, down the street from our world headquarters, and access coursework, pay bills or stream movies, and it opens up a future in which the city uses real-time data to deliver better services to its citizens.
