Shaun Donovan is running for Mayor of New York City. Technically not a national or global position, but in practice it is. Many call it the second hardest job in America. Most New York City mayors affect the nation and world.
With a city this size, there are many issues. I focus on two: leadership, which means character and social and emotional skills, and sustainability.
Regarding leadership, character, and what motivated him, I heard Shaun share vulnerability. I’m impressed, considering his experience in the White House and beyond, and how many politicians share prepared messages more than themselves. I’ll share his bio and then our conversation.
Regarding sustainability, I asked him about litter, biking, farmers markets, and more.
