Bloomberg : How America's Most Successful Mayor Would Govern as President
by Chris McNickle and Kenneth T. Jackson




Overview -
Examine the Bipartisan Legacy of a Remarkable Billionaire Politician
Bloomberg: How America's Most Successful Mayor Would Govern as President tells the story of how one of America's most successful entrepreneurs was elected mayor of New York City and what he did with the power he won.

Michael Bloomberg's stunning victory against all odds just weeks after the 9/11 terrorist attack left him facing challenges unlike any mayor in history. For the next twelve years, he kept the city safe, managed budgets through fiscal crises, promoted private sector growth, generated jobs, built infrastructure, protected the environment, supported society's cultural sensibilities, and achieved dramatic improvements in public health. Bloomberg was an activist executive who used government assets boldly and wisely for the greatest good, for the greatest number of people.

His time as mayor was not without controversy. Bloomberg supported stop and frisk police tactics that a judge ruled unconstitutional, and jailhouse violence rose to levels so severe the federal government intervened. The administration's homeless policies were ineffective. And he forced a change in the city charter to allow him to serve a third term.

Overall, record low crime and the lasting impact of innovative policies will cause his tenure to be remembered as a remarkable success. Having returned to his global media empire, and to his private philanthropy, Bloomberg continues to challenge the National Rifle Association on gun control, promote national education reform, and support policies to combat climate change. Bloomberg leaves behind a legacy of effective government, a legacy he might revive as he runs for president in 2020.
