Vintage Carrion: ‘The Top Job is the Right Job for a Leader Like Me’

Not that long ago, Adolfo Carrion and his supporters were indulging speculation he would run for mayor, even sending out a video that looked a lot like a mayoral campaign ad.

Today a reader pointed me to this 2005 New York Times interview with Carrion, headlined “Another Bronx Borough President Weighs Mayoral Bid,” in which he says, “If I were to make a decision right now, today, I would say that the top job is the right job for a leader like me. For me, it’s too early to get into those specifics."

What changed?
