Carl Person, the Reform Party candidate for Mayor of New York City, announced today that “I am the first person to be nominated for Mayor of New York City, and I want voters and other parties and candidates to know what honest politics should be doing for voters and residents in New York City.”

Person continued, “Instead of giving away taxpayers’ money to special interests or regulating drink size or creating traffic congestion or hiding low-priced cigarettes, the Mayor and the City Council should ensure that New York City is training high school students so that upon graduation they can obtain immediate high-income employment as small business information technology specialists, without having to take out student loans, attend college, and suffer from jobless graduation and a lifetime of paying off loans for over-priced tuition.”
Information technology specialists for major corporations is the second of the 10 fastest growing field of employment in the United States [http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/17/education/edlife/edl-17conted-t.html?pagewanted=all ], and for small business the field is brand new, “with New York City to be the first to offer such training, to high school seniors and a comparable 1-year program for adults during evenings and weekends”, according to Person.… Read more ...
