NYC’s Republican Mayoral Candidate Meets with President Joel, Speaks to Students
On Tuesday, October 1, 2013, New York City Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota paid a visit to Yeshiva University’s Israel Henry Beren Campus, where he was greeted by YU President Richard M. Joel and Andrew Lauer, vice president for legal affairs, secretary and general counsel.
After touring the campus, Lhota spoke to students in President Joel’s Leadership in the Non-Profit World class about his experiences as a leader in both the public and private sectors.
“It was a privilege hosting Joe Lhota at Yeshiva,” said President Joel. “I am grateful that Mr. Lhota had the opportunity to share his experiences and provide key insights about the importance of leadership in all areas of life with our students.”
Bill de Blasio, New York City’s Democratic candidate for mayor, had previously visited Yeshiva University on November 29, 2012.
