Profile Bio Text
Michael Rubens Bloomberg (born February 14, 1942) is an American businessman and the Mayor of New York City. A lifelong Democrat, he switched his registration in 2001 and ran as a Republican, winning the election that year and a second term in 2005. He is currently listed on the Forbes 400 as the eighth-richest American, with a net worth of US$20 billion.
He was frequently mentioned as a possible independent candidate for the 2008 presidential election and fueled that speculation when he left the Republican Party in June 2007. He repeatedly denied any plans to run and said the news media had concocted rumors of his possible presidential bid. He ended speculation on the matter in a February 2008 New York Times Op-Ed piece where he wrote "I listened carefully to those who encouraged me to run, but I am not – and will not be – a candidate for president." There was also speculation that he would run as a vice-presidential candidate.
On September 30, 2008, reports emerged that Bloomberg was seeking to overturn the term limits law in order to clear the way to a run for a third term as mayor, and on October 2, 2008, Bloomberg announced he plans to request the overturning or extending of term-limits for current office holders. The New York City Council voted 29-22 in favor of extending the term limit to three consecutive four-year terms on October 23, thus allowing Bloomberg to run for office again. Bloomberg`s administration has been asking for the support of nonprofit groups with the proposed amendment, which has come under the scrutiny of many political officials, since these groups have received large donations from the mayor in the past.
On November 10, 2008, Bloomberg sued the Federal Reserve for failing to disclose where its $2 trillion of loans were going.
