How a Deficit-Plagued District of Columbia was Transformed into a Financially Healthy Municipality
Our Speaker: 

Natwar Gandhi, Former Chief Financial Officer, District of Columbia

A first-hand account of:

- How the District was transformed from a deficit-plagued, junk bond rated jurisdiction with $550 million negative fund balance into a financially healthy municipality with a string of balanced budgets and a fund balance of $1.5 billion at the end of 2013, and 

- How the District secured multiple rating upgrades (a total of 13 rating steps since FY2000) from the major rating agencies for its general obligation bonds, which are currently rated A+ by Standard and Poor’s, AA- by Fitch Ratings and Aa2 by Moody’s Investors Service.
