DATA-DRIVEN DECISION-MAKER

A nice piece in today's Inky about the City's new Managing Director, Camille Cates Barnett: "One Brisk City Boss." Our firm has had some interactions with her and found her impressively intelligent, driven, and demanding. It's great to see how data-driven the Nutter administration seeks to be in terms of its decision-making: it makes more more public accountability, less backroom deals, and better results.

It's particularly rewarding for me to see how many Felsonians are intimately involved in this revolution in public sector management; witness my colleagues' quote in the article about connecting Philadelphia's population loss to the relatively low number of direct flights to Philadelphia International from key immigrant countries. So for those of you "go-go's" looking for good governance movements around the world, keep an eye out on this stodgiest, most politically infamous of US big cities.
