Summary
Elected at 29 as the nation's youngest mayor, Pete Buttigieg recognised that 'great cities, and even great nations, are built through attention to the everyday.' As this title recalls, the challenges were daunting - whether confronting gun violence, renaming a street in honour of Martin Luther King Jr., or attracting tech companies to a city that had appealed more to junk bond scavengers than serious investors. None of this is underscored more than Buttigieg's audacious campaign to reclaim 1000 houses, many of them abandoned, in 1000 days and then, even as a sitting mayor, deploying to serve in Afghanistan as a Navy officer. Yet the most personal challenge still awaited Buttigieg, who came out in a South Bend Tribune editorial, just before being reelected with 78% of the vote, and then meeting Chasten Glezman, a middle-school teacher, who would become his partner for life
