What Cities Work, a branch project of Bloomberg Philanthropies, looks to help cities use data to make governments work better for their people. Nutter, who modernized a lot of City Hall's technology and labored towards more open data during his two terms as Philly mayor, will become a national spokesperson for the project's work. He will also current mayors across the country on their data strategies.
Nutter was appointed as a senior fellow alongside former New York City Chief Analytics Officer Mike Flowers.
“Michael Nutter and Mike Flowers both have great track records using data and evidence in creative ways to improve people's lives in cities. The wisdom they bring to the table from their work in Philadelphia and New York will be a valuable asset for everyone participating in What Works Cities,” Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies and three-term Mayor of New York City, said in a statement.
At this rate, Nutter's going to run out of room in his Twitter bio by early March.
