We hear political candidates and in the media reference "first 100 days in office" all the time while on the road campaigning for office. Many establish elaborate plans, road maps, and agendas for what they'll do, if elected, in those critical first few months in office. How do those best-laid plans pan out once in office during normal times? How does a newly elected executive official take the helm during a pandemic? Please join the Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics and the Taubman Center for State and Local Government for the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum on Wednesday, April 21st, 2021, 6:00 pm ET for a virtual discussion with Mayor Daniella Levine Cava (Miami-Dade County, FL) on her transition from campaigning to her first 100 days of governing. Mayor Levine Cava assumed office in late 2020 amidst a devastating pandemic, struggling economy, and widespread calls to action on social and racial inequities. We will hear how she navigated these and other issues in her early months of governance, what she’s accomplished, and what lies ahead. Mayor Levine Cava participated in the 2020-21 Transition Term, a Taubman Center fellowship program that places Harvard Kennedy School students in the offices of newly elected governors, county executives, and mayors to support their transition from campaigning to governing.
