Q: Why would you run for an office that you have no chance of winning?

A: I'm doing it because I was greatly disturbed that none of the candidates were articulating a conservative point of view, a point of view from the neighborhoods of this city, which have been assaulted and plundered for a half a century. I'm also running because no one is addressing the fact that we have to reinvent government in this city, fiscally, economically, and culturally, or we're going right down the tubes. Giuliani and Dinkins have a caretaker mentality. The only thing that's going to be left is the undertaker when they're through, or the financial control board. I don't know which is worse.
