Cities Can Win When We Show Up and Pay Attention
Keith Brady
GMA President
November 6, 2014

Our call as city officials is to make decisions for the good of our city. It’s often an inward, narrowly focused activity. To be effective leaders, however, we don’t have the luxury of only focusing inward. We must be willing to look up, pay attention to what is going on around us and do what we must do to engage with those that have influence on how we conduct our business at home.
