Hampton Mayor One of 38 Selected For Leadership Program

HAMPTON-Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck was recently selected as one of 38 mayors for an intensive education program through the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative.

The year-long program will be taught by faculty from Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School as well as world-class experts from Bloomberg Philanthropies’ global network.

 “I’m looking forward to the year ahead as a great opportunity for city leaders to meet, exchange ideas, and discuss how best to approach solving pressing problems for our citizens,” Tuck said in a statement. “All cities want to reduce crime, and Hampton’s focus will be on improving public safety and ensuring positive outcomes for our youth by working with strategic community partners. We will be using data, working across sectors, and sharing innovative ideas on these and other topics.”  

Hampton’s City Manager Mary Bunting as well as City Attorney Cheran Ivery will also be involved in the program.

Michael R. Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City and founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies collaborated with Harvard University leadership to create the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative in 2017. The goal is to help mayors and their leadership teams manage the complexities of running a city, and to give these leaders opportunities to learn from each another.
