THE NEW NEWARK: Part II: Creating a Government That Works
In the third year of his administration, Newark Mayor Cory Booker and his administration continue to seek effective means for creating a culture of government accountability. How do urban leaders inculcate new values and entrepreneurial passion in city bureaucracies that have long been unmovable, dependent on political appointments and patronage? What can other cities learn from Newark’s experience? And what challenges remain for civic reform in Newark?
