The Program in Practical Policy Engagement (P3E) and the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) invite you to join us for an informal roundtable conversation with Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz (Ford MPP '96)  who will share his experience from Ford School student to current Mayor of the City of Toledo-only 40 miles from Ann Arbor.  As Mayor, Wade has worked to implement innovative and creative public policy in this rustbelt city. Toledo, often following in the footsteps of near-neighbor Detroit, is in the midst of a revitalization with a thriving downtown, new private investment, and led by a mayor with an exciting vision for the future. During the discussion, Wade looks forward to sharing his thoughts on innovative public policy but also in learning from you about ideas for local governance in the 21st century.
