People That I Admire, Springtime Edition


It's time for another installment of my irregular feature People That I Admire:

Mike Schrunk, the elected district attorney in Portland, Oregon and a relentless innovator, has done it again: Multnomah County is now holding court in a homeless shelter.

Elish Angiolini, who visited the Red Hook Community Justice Center not too long ago, seeks to rethink how Scotland handles female offenders.

Alexis Sturdy, who has done an amazing job building Wesleyan's Center for Prison Education, is featured in the Middletown Press.

Andrew Kimball, who has kept the Brooklyn Navy Yard at the forefront of economic development in New York, is rewarded with a glowing editorial in the New York Daily News.

David Kramer, a real estate developer with both heart and vision, is profiled in the New York Times.

Scott Millstein continues to drive Coro New York forward.  The organization's annual benefit is coming up on May 17 and features, among other honorees, Bill Bratton.
