Keep an eye on Richmond's new mayor Levar Stoney. When he becomes more polished, he will be going places.
He's young, a bit of a hipster, good looking, has a good story, won in a surprising upset and has the backing of Virginia's political and business elites.

I don't see the next "leader" coming from one of the cities listed. Too much legacy baggage with all of these places. Look for them to come from a place with fresh (realitivly) ideas and management styles (Denver perhaps?).

i think the next quote-unquote black leader that will have the next legitimate presidential run will be either corey booker or duval patrick; so that would be either newark, nj or boston respectively.

It seems that Patrick is uninterested in a presidential run.

Svante Myrick, the mayor of Ithaca NY is similar in this regard: https://youtu.be/ab4Z6cdH8bQ

He actually grew up for a good portion of his youth in a small town east of Syracuse by the name of Earlville(about 50 mins-an hour away) .

More info: https://www.google.com/amp/amp.syrac...oung_mayor.amp

Also in Ithaca, here is someone in a leadership position in terms of education: DR. LUVELLE BROWN NAMED ONE OF THE NATION

So, Ithaca NY may be one of those underrated, not thought of cities in this regard.
