City Guardians: The Unseen Power of Mayors

Whatever your preconceived ideas are of a mayor, they usually all lead back to that person being the “guardian of the city.” Rarely do we think of mayors having access to a national network designed to work together to solve issues that occur in everyone’s cities - but in fact, they’re the ones on the frontlines doing that important work. On our newest episode, Jeremy and Jasmine sit down with Nan Whaley, former mayor of Dayton, Ohio, and current director of membership for the U.S. Conference of Mayors, to discuss the power of the mayors and the essential role they play in local and national politics.
