"Join your fellow Madisonians in developing a bold idea to improve the quality of life in our city and beyond."
A Message from Madison Mayor Paul Soglin
New York City Mayor Bloomberg has announced his Mayor's Challenge. Through his foundation, he is searching for innovative local solutions to national problems. He created the Challenge to celebrate creative problem solving through innovation that's happening in cities from coast to coast. The top five "greatest potential" ideas from cities across America will win funding from Mayor Bloomberg's foundation. One project will be awarded $5 million. Four others will win $1 million each.
In these very tight fiscal times, that funding would be a great way to assist the City as we face a number of challenges. I am asking you to share your ideas. No one is more innovative than citizens of Madison and I am confident we will see many outstanding proposals. I look forward to hearing from you!
Paul R. Soglin, Mayor
