Kate Graham (@KateMarieGraham) is a PhD student in the Political Science Department at Western University. Her dissertation is entitled, Leading Canada’s Cities: A Study of Urban Mayors. The paper examines the political leadership of Canada’s cities, specifically focused on the role of mayors. (For her day job, Kate works as the Director of Community & Economic Innovation at the City of London.)

More about the research: The ‘Mayors Project‘ examines the role of the mayor in ten Canadian cities — the largest in each province — to understand the role, how it varies, and what this means for the success of our cities and our country. The project is about building a uniquely Canadian understanding of the role of the mayor, and seeking new insights into the nature of political leadership in Canada’s cities.
