Well this just -- Wal-Mart not out maybe not out at least in new York and at least not it is marijuana that he has is what I.
Because Republican mayoral candidate Joseph Mota not only -- -- there's a concept.
It that by the way is an -- Big Apple politics I won't -- he also supports Wal-Mart coming to New York.
-- and you know the history on this and that.
It is not politically correct like one you know it's outrageous -- New York we've got elected officials here who who wanna be circuits for the unions.
-- met elected officials in New York should be focused on getting jobs for the people who live in New York.
About allowing him to be able like clothing and food at less price does that mean that the numbers are not true it I would have said it that it is Wal-Mart.
-- where -- -- unionize they wouldn't have this problem and that would be allowed him to set up on Jupiter but but that that issue.
Always gets in the way I think it has not announcement any of these others is that part.
Do you think it's totally because the fact that they unions and and that many of the products made by nonunion people don't know what.
Each and every one of these politicians who -- Wal-Mart and hates the idea.
That the clothing come from somewhere in Asia and nonunion labor each one of them has an apple -- my phone in their pockets who made by nonunion labor in China.
As a lot of.
I'm here as The New Yorker yourself expensive things are their little stores around the block here one placement as it turns fifty dollars a gallon of milk.
But I -- but not that much but say that that New Yorkers -- any political stripe for persuasion.
Would welcome at least a break -- four dollar.
Prescription -- -- -- at Wal-Mart provides.
-- -- -- -- Thousands of New Yorkers from queen's every day go to NASA accounting to buy the milk at Wal-Mart they save anywhere from six to 10% on cost.
-- -- six to 10% of your payroll back in your pocket.
On the other side of it you've got people in the Bronx so we're going -- to the Wal-Mart in Westchester County.
We need them in New York but each one of the Wal-Mart stores provides anywhere from 200 to 300 jobs.
The last time they didn't allow one in New York -- in Queens it was in the community that had 20%.
Officials won't let me just say you wanted to become mayor Tom.
There's the raging here to wal -- of these so called big box stores coming and all of the big -- seems to be generally limited Wal-Mart.
Is that they very very throw out all these small businesses that have been around mom and pop institutions and these local blocks and what happens.
That might happen in main street in middle America whether as a main street.
-- half million people who live in New York we don't have a main street.
We have a half million voted -- as an -- those of these little neighborhoods -- you don't think they would -- that it it didn't suffer in Westchester County it didn't suffer in Nassau County are two counties -- border of one to the north and and one to the east.
Never have to happen there and you do know that the greater good would be just that the the greater flexibility in pricing for for constituents aren't.
The greater good in pricing for constituents for consumers but more importantly jobs.
Elected officials in New York should be -- concerned about making sure that the their constituents have a job.
It's most important thing that I will focus on as mayor making sure that everybody in New York has a job or an opportunity for.
Has a Republican.
You're an uphill fight in -- in New York.
You're down in all the polls but -- that's there's a lot of people simply don't.
No you they go into the reader who by the way is feeding almost -- -- -- and I mean.
-- on that opened my point is Mayor Bloomberg as a Republican now is an independent body I think he became a Republican to run twelve years ago.
You're up against a lot.
In a very liberal town right.
And he reconcile we've had Republican or independent mayor for the last twenty years Rudy Giuliani lukewarm.
And quite obviously socially progressive fiscally conservative is that you I am I am exactly that I am socially progressive I am very fiscally conservative -- was the budget director of city during Giuliani's first term as deputy mayor in the second term.
There's no question.
On my fiscal conservatism.
He loves you -- -- easily than they argued he's pushing for you opt to put that.
That that the name recognition thing it's still tough.
The name recognition thing is important -- out -- fundraising every single day on husband and my money so that we can use to create closer to the primary.
Which will be -- September and then general election in November.
I'm part of campaign finance system here in New York -- -- limits how much I can spend name recognition is critical my name will be out there people know me when they get to the polls do.
Tell that they're just.
If he -- -- -- -- now but it would religion's name again this they've got Republican fatigue that Mayor Bloomberg twelve years well let's hop on the other side right.
I don't think the mayor of New York you know the focus on on Republican fatigue comes about it's really going to be who do you -- -- be the next leader of New York.
And unlike folks in Washington and New York City the mayor's job is to keep you safe.
Is to keep your taxes low it's a pick up your garbage gets to pick up the snow when it actually snows in New York.
And it's really important -- the right person to manage a city of New York.
Look what -- said there's no Republican or democratic way to pick up the garbage he was -- -- right who's the best person for the job that'll be me.
A home but he was always -- -- -- -- memory would read comics two kids on the radio and now we have many new technologies what folksy thing is are you gonna do all New York mayors -- characters in some way shape -- form you know I -- I want every word trust what Rudy Giuliani -- -- -- -- -- -- a guarantee of our house of but but -- -- leave -- on my.
Character doesn't environment remember David Dinkins and it firms and a tuxedo for like OK so I guess.
In this city it's a tough crowd as they say -- How would you distinguish.
-- -- Along -- -- distinguish myself as the only person running whose work in the private sector -- manage complex organizations.
Have a vast amount of of government experience as well.
Only one with that with that combination of the two and New York City is a very complex organization is to set it.
The senate seventy billion dollar budget seventy billion dollar enterprise.
As almost 300000 employees larger than most corporations in America you don't leave this in the hands of politicians who've never managed anything before.

Prospective opponents when they come on they are on.
