Stephen Goldsmith

Stephen Goldsmith is Deputy Mayor of the City of New York. He was formerly the Daniel Paul Professor of Government in the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation in the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and Chair of the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Professor Goldsmith previously served two terms as Mayor of Indianapolis, America's 12th largest city. As mayor, he reduced government spending, cut the city's bureaucracy, held the line on taxes, eliminated counterproductive regulations, and identified more than $400 million in savings. He reinvested the savings by leading a transformation of downtown Indianapolis that has been held up as a national model. He has also served as the Chief Domestic Policy Advisor to the George W. Bush campaign in 2000 and was District Attorney for Marion County, Indiana from 1979 to 1990.

His books include Governing by Network: The New Shape of the Public Sector, Putting Faith in Neighborhoods: Making Cities Work through Grassroots Citizenship and The Twenty-First Century City: Resurrecting Urban America.
