Former Mayor of Philadelphia, PA
Sworn in for a second term in January 2012, Michael A. Nutter has set an aggressive agenda for America’s fifth largest city -- improving high school graduation and college attainment rates, strengthening community policing through Philly Rising, a unique partnership between vulnerable neighborhoods and the City, and continuing to implement the nationally recognized GreenWorks Philadelphia initiative that is helping to make the City of Philadelphia the greenest city in America. Born in Philadelphia and educated at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Michael Nutter has been committed to public service since his youth in West Philadelphia. He served almost 15 years on the Philadelphia City Council, earning the reputation of a reformer, before his election as Mayor of Philadelphia. In June 2013, Mayor Nutter concluded his year-long tenure as President of the United States Conference of Mayors. In June 2014, Mayor Nutter was selected as the President of the Pennsylvania Municipal League.
