The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute and Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams invite you to attend a conversation with Bruce J. Katz, Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, and Jeremy Nowak, Non-Resident Senior Fellow at Brookings, who will share their public policy work and discuss their most recent book: “The New Localism: How Cities Can Thrive in the Age of Populism”.

Mr. Katz is the inaugural Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, where he focuses on the challenges and opportunities of global urbanization. He is a co-author of two books The Metropolitan Revolution, and The New Localism, which focuses on the shift of power from national governments and states to cities and metropolitan communities. Before joining Brookings­­, Katz served as chief of staff to Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros and was the senior counsel and then staff director for the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Housing and Urban Affairs. In 2008, he co-led the housing and urban issues transition team for the Obama Administration and served as a senior advisor to the new Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan for the first 100 days of the administration.
