Today, Flint Mayor Dayne Walling was selected as one of ten rising leaders from across the country to join the NewDEAL, a national network that highlights innovative ideas from state and local elected leaders who are pro-growth progressives.

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and Alaska Senator Mark Begich, Honorary Chairs of NewDEAL, recognized Walling for his efforts to grow Flint’s economy by recycling Brownfield sites.

“Senator Begich and I have joined NewDEAL because we believe we need to look for fresh ideas not just from the top down in Washington, but also from the bottom up, where innovative leaders like Dayne Walling are developing and testing their ideas out on the ground,” said Governor O’Malley.

“In communities throughout the country, rising state and local leaders such as Dayne Walling are proving that you can be both pro-growth and progressive. The NewDEAL is designed to foster these types of ideas and these types of leaders,” said Senator Begich.

Walling said “I’m proud to be recognized by the NewDEALfor my work to stabilize our neighborhoods and create jobs by recycling our brownfield property.”
