Gateways Live: Gateway Cities Coronavirus Response
Live Gateways Podcast
September 8, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
MassINC’s Gateways Podcast presents:
A live Gateways podcast and panel on crisis response in Massachusetts’ Gateway Cities.
MassINC’s Ben Forman and Dr. Tracy Corley moderate a discussion between three Gateway City mayors about each city’s immediate response to the coronavirus crisis and strategies for recovery.
From health and safety to education, housing, and economic relief, the pandemic has drastically altered ‘business as usual’, and, in many Gateway Cities, interrupted growing momentum for a bright future.
The decisions these mayors make today will have ripple effects far into the future. During this live podcast, we’ll explore what it’s like to lead through crisis and what steps local officials are taking to help their communities recover.
Mayor Kim Driscoll, City of Salem
Mayor Jon Mitchell, City of New Bedford
Mayor Dan Rivera, City of Lawrence
