How about the Mayor of NYC.

Wow. A political leader of a huge metropolis that is getting things done.
Just read that Mayor Bloomberg is going to have NYC full of hybrid taxis in the next few years. Good on him and good for New York. I have also read that the general health of his constituants is getting better every year. (Our country's awareness of trans fats got a huge boost from the actions taken in New York.)
Consider this: "As Mayor, Michael Bloomberg has implemented a comprehensive citywide public health policy known as Take Care New York, a program of 10 preventive health steps that every person can follow to significantly improve his or her health. Since being introduced in 2003, Take Care New York has successfully increased New Yorkers' access to health care, reduced smoking rates, increased HIV testing and colon cancer screening, and further reduced childhood lead poisoning and infant mortality rates to historic lows. For the first time since World War II, life expectancy for the average New Yorker is longer than the U.S. average."

Pretty impressive stuff for an elected official. Almost restores my faith in our political process. Keep it up Mayor Bloomberg. Please.
