Mayoral Policy-Making: Results from the 21st Century Mayors Leadership survey represents the first nationally representative survey of American mayoral priorities. The report, released by the Boston University Initiative on Cities, is based on interviews with over seventy American mayors from cities of all sizes and affluence. Sitting mayors offered their perspectives on challenges facing their cities, personal policy priorities and planned political capital expenditures, and responded to a series of trade off questions related to gentrification, income inequality and climate change. It highlights the importance mayors place on the physical, fiscal and social infrastructure of their cities, and – contrary to prior research - suggests that party affiliation has a significant influence on mayoral priority-setting.
