THE GIULIANI IMPRINT: PERMANENT CHANGE OR PASSING PHASE?

How does Rudy Giuliani’s legacy affect the future of New York City’s governance?
He has been called a tyrant and a miracle worker. Presiding over a stock market
boom and a stunning drop in crime, he won liberal supporters for his Republican
administration even as his combative tactics and outspoken pugnaciousness
infuriated many New Yorkers.

As Mayor Giuliani's term comes to a close, New York's leading political
commentators debate his administration’s impact on the city. Have his
personality and policies, from welfare reform to stronger police presence,
fueled prosperity or fractured the city? How has his tenure shaped the debate
over what the next mayor can and should accomplish?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
QUESTION:
After two terms of Guiliani, will New Yorkers look to someone who loves City
Hall demonstrations, *homeless shelters* and risqué art? In short, how has Mayor
Giuliani changed New York City, and how will those changes shape the future
leadership of the City?

[COMMENTS PLEASE - Will those called homeless be better off or worse off from
the Giuliani’s legacy?  What can we do to influence change by participating in
the election process this year? ]
