Statement of Michael R. Bloomberg on the Passing of Mayor Bruno Covas

Mayor Covas was a bold and creative leader who helped make the economic engine of Brazil one of the most innovative cities in the region. He was a collaborative and inspiring mayor with great ideas, and we were glad to work closely with him through our Mayors Challenge – where he led the charge to put Sao Paulo’s winning idea into action – and our executive leadership program for mayors. He brought the same courage, determination, and positive spirit to his fight with cancer that he did to City Hall, and the work he did will continue to improve millions of lives in Sao Paulo for many years to come.
