Neil O'Leary ran his 2011 mayoral campaign on the central theme of economic development, and he promised, if elected, to deliver a more aggressive approach to business recruitment. O'Leary also vowed to raise the city's profile by taking Waterbury's message of opportunity on the road. And in the first ten months of his administration O'Leary has traveled more than the previous mayor, who was averse to travel, accomplished in ten years in office. O'Leary attended the National Conference of Mayors in Washington D.C. where he had the opportunity to meet President Barack Obama, he led a small contingent of municipal leaders to Idaho on a fact finding mission about a proposed hospital merger, and this week O'Leary is traveling alone to Kentucky to participate in the Mayor's Institute On City Design where he will seek innovative ideas on how to solve transportation issues in Waterbury.
