The panel discussion, moderated by Glenda Hood, a Rose Center Advisory Board member and former mayor of Orlando and Florida Secretary of State, examined the shared challenges and opportunities leaders have in building their cities to compete in the 21st century economy.

Current and former Rose Fellow mayors participated in the discussion: Mayor Bob Buckhorn of Tampa, Mayor Dave Bing of Detroit, Mayor Sly James of Kansas City, Mayor Karl Dean of Nashville, and Mayor Angel Taveras of Providence. More than 100 attendees of the Fall Meeting were treated to each mayor’s insights about the innovations and techniques employed to position their cities as attractive locations for investment and residency.
