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. Iâ€™m impressed, considering his experience in the White House and beyond, and how many politicians share prepared messages more than themselves. Iâ€™ll share his bio and then our conversation.
Regarding sustainability, I asked him about litter, biking, farmers markets, and more.
