Twitter Co-Founder Jack Dorsey Aspires To Run For Mayor of New York
Dorsey has suggested in the past that a mayoral run in the Big Apple would be something he’s interested in, and he reportedly even bent current mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ear about it. According to Business Insider, Dorsey just told a “60 Minutes” interviewer that he’s serious about running for mayor someday. He doesn’t have a timeline per se, but it’s apparently something he’s serious about.

It’s an entertaining thought: A tech mogul as mayor of New York? Such a person would certainly bring an interesting perspective on problem-solving and understanding how people work, play, and communicate.
However, becoming the mayor of New York is not the same as snagging the same office in some small town; that office has a great deal of clout, and it’s an especially public position. Dorsey no doubt by now has the bankroll to make a bid, so perhaps he’s just waiting until the time is right.
