Welcome to the NewDEAL! As Honorary Chairs, we are excited to introduce you to a new national network for state and local leaders with innovative ideas to grow progress.

Both of us have joined the NewDEAL because as former mayors, we saw first hand that in order to win the future, we need ideas that are both pro-growth and progressive.

Many of these pro-growth progressive ideas are being developed and tested out in states, cities, and communities all across the country. That’s why the NewDEAL is designed to be a place where you can discover rising state and local leaders sharing their ideas to expand opportunity for all of us.

So thanks for visiting the NewDEAL. We hope you’ll let us know about exciting leaders you meet, encourage your friends to check us out, and stay connected as we add more NewDEAL leaders with fresh ideas to grow progress.
