...Instead, this case presents the possibility that oil, gas and coal companies could be guilty of defrauding investors if they misled the public about how they are managing the current and future risks of climate change to their financial prospects, including increased regulatory burdens like a carbon tax. “That could have both financial as well as political ramifications in terms of generating the political will to address climate change,” said Katrina Fischer Kuh, the Haub Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law at Pace University.

...Pace University, for instance, has agreements with several municipalities under which their employees receive tuition discounts. Through a partnership with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the university also offers federal employees discounted tuition for three graduate programs, including a master’s degree in public administration.

“That professionalization of the public service – as well as the nonprofit and health care sectors – is supported both through the university and thought the employers,” said Hillary Knepper, chairwoman of the Pace University Department of Public Administration.

"City & State" featured President Marvin Krislov in "The Westchester Power 50; 11-50"

"City & State" featured President Marvin Krislov in "The Westchester Power 50; 11-50"

The most influential people in the Hudson Valley.

In the era of President Donald Trump, the national political debate has grown increasingly divisive. Voters are shifting to the extremes, leaving fewer Americans in the middle. But there are places where independent-minded voters still play an important role – and in New York, one of those places is Westchester County.

The county’s history as a swing district – after two terms with Republican Rob Astorino as county executive, it went strongly for Democrat George Latimer last year – gives it outsized importance in state politics and policymaking. Politicians like Gov. Andrew Cuomo – who lives in Westchester when he’s not in Albany – must keep the county’s needs in mind on the campaign trail. It’s no surprise that state Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins, who is hoping to lead Senate Democrats back to the majority, hails from Westchester.

In this special issue of City & State, we take a closer look at the lesser-known – but no less influential – movers and shakers of Westchester County. Since we cover politicians on a day-to-day basis, we limited this list to those who are not strictly in government but instead influence it from the outside.

We partnered on this project with Suzanne Colucci, an award-winning television journalist based in Westchester. We reached out to insiders and experts to compile this list, ranking each person based on their accomplishments, their sway in political and policy matters, their economic clout, their philanthropic efforts, their ties to powerful politicians and the constituencies they represent. It’s worth noting that the people on it are predominantly white and male, which simply reflects our best attempt at identifying the power structure as it is. We sought to balance that by presenting an additional – and more diverse – list of younger figures on the rise. We’re pleased to present the Westchester Power 50.

30. Marvin Krislov, President, Pace University

Marvin Krislov took the reins at Pace University last year, becoming its eighth president. He is a dynamic force leading an institution with 13,000 students in New York City and Westchester. The former president of Oberlin College and former vice president and general counsel at the University of Michigan is also an accomplished attorney and legal scholar, having worked in the U.S. Labor Department during the Clinton administration. Krislov has long fought for college inclusiveness and student diversity.
