Mayor, New York City

Although not a native New Yorker (he was born in Boston, in fact), Bloomberg has shown his love for the city as only a transplant can. As its 108th mayor, over the last decade he has brought down all those things that should be brought down (crime, teen smoking, ambulance response times) and increased those things that should be increased (graduation rates, parkland, jobs). Before he was mayor, Bloomberg founded Bloomberg LP, a global media company with more than 300,000 subscribers to its financial news and information service.
