Rick Baker

About the Program

Rick Baker, former mayor of St. Petersburg, Florida, presents his thoughts on the revitalization of American cities.  The two-term mayor argues against a large government to solve city problems and presents what he deems a "seamless city" where no area in the city is underserved.  Rick Baker is introduced by New York City's deputy mayor and the former mayor of Indianapolis, Stephen Goldsmith at the Harvard Club in New York City.
