Phil Thompson is the new Deputy Mayor for Strategic Policy Initiatives under Mayor Bill de Blasio. Joining the administration in March, Thompson has a portfolio that includes managing the city's approach to the upcoming U.S. Census and much more. He joined the podcast to talk about his new role, his path back to City Hall (he and de Blasio both worked for Mayor David Dinkins), and some of the policy areas where he's looking to bring his expertise to bear.
