Although he said he believes marriage should be limited to a man and a woman, he can “live with” the legalization in New York. He served as Mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001. A Democrat and Independent in the 1970’s, and a Republican since the 1980’s. He served two terms as Mayor of NYC, having run along Republican and Liberal lines. He was credited with initiating improvements and with a reduction in crime pressing the city’s quality of life initiatives.
