From Real Deal:
Many in the New York real estate community are in favor of Mayor Michael Bloomberg serving a third term as mayor. Developers, landlords, investors and brokers like Bloomberg because he's been a pro-business, pro-real estate mayor, and want a businessman in charge of the city during the Wall Street crisis. Developer Alex Sapir said, "Let's keep him forever"; Howard Lorber, chairman of Prudential Douglas Elliman, said, "I can't think of anyone who's done more for New York … in my lifetime"; and Donald Trump said, "Any time I see Michael I say, please run."
