Michael Dukakis continues to champion excellence in governance as a professor at Northeastern University and UCLA, public transit proponent, and advocate for urban America.  He served two terms as Governor of Massachusetts and was the 1988 Democratic nominee for President. Infrastructure priorities are finally part of the national dialogue and will reshape the form of cities such as Los Angeles and Boston in the years to come.  Interact with Governor Dukakis as he shares his perspectives on best practices in local, state, and federal leadership, and transportation planning and implementation.

dwpThere is nothing like a drought to focus our attention on the availability of water. Yet the connection between water and electricity usage usually goes unnoticed. Few realize that LA’s annual water consumption has been flat for 30 years while the city’s population has grown by over 1 million inhabitants, or that water management consumes 20% of the state’s electric power. What is the perspective of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the nation’s largest municipally owned public utility, given its mandate to manage water and energy resources? How does it ensure today’s water delivery and future supplies for a growing city?
