Event Details

New York City faces a pivotal election in this June's Democratic Primary, which will determine the outcomes of most races in our very Democratic city. Term limits are forcing most elected officials out of office, including council members, borough presidents, the comptroller, and the mayor. 

We invite you to join us for conversations with NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer (9:45 am) and former HUD Secretary and OMB Director Shaun Donovan (10:30 am), two of the candidates running for Mayor of New York City. Stringer and Donovan were both Highly Rated by the AIA New York Political Action Fund, the association's political organization. 

Our next mayor will be faced with addressing many critical architectural issues around housing, transportation, sustainability, and more. These and other topics will be addressed over the course of the conversation, with opportunities for questions from attendees. This event will consist of two separate moderated conversations, one with each candidate, to learn more about their visions for how they will address architecture in New York City over the coming years. 

Scott Stringer, NYC Comptroller (9:45 am)
Shaun Donovan, Hon. AIA, Former HUD Secretary and OMB Director (10:30 am)
