Bloomberg Likely To Buy Higher Office
It appears increasingly likely that New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael R. Bloomberg’s people are appraising other rare public offices for his nascent collection.
The founder of Bloomberg LLP, the financial news corporation, Bloomberg put in the winning bid of $70 million in 2001 to become the Big Apple’s 108th chief executive.
Sources said he has reviewed appraisals of public offices in Europe and Asia, but strongly prefers domestic titles.
Bloomberg recently changed his party registration from Republican to Independent, which observers say is a strong sign he may be seeking to acquire the Mona Lisa of all political jobs, the U.S. presidency.
