Former New York City Mayor
2008 Republican candidate for President of the United States
Tuesday, May 8 - 8:45 a.m.-9:45 a.m.
Rudolph W. Giuliani is the grandson of Italian immigrants and is living proof on the values of a strong work ethic and America’s ideal of equal opportunity. During his time as U.S. District Attorney of New York, Giuliani spearheaded successful efforts against organized crime, drug dealers and corrupt elected officials. Few U.S. Attorneys in history can match his record of 4,152 convictions with only 25 reversals.
In 1993, as Mayor of New York City, Giuliani cut crime by 56% and murder by 66%. New York City — once considered the crime capital of the country — became the safest large city in America according to the FBI.
Giuliani received international acclaim for valiantly leading the recovery after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. For his accomplishments, he was named “Person of the Year” by TIME magazine, knighted by the Queen of England and was honored with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom award. In 2002, he founded Giuliani Partners, which leads the industry in emergency preparedness, public safety and leadership during crises.
As a Republican candidate for United States President, he galvanized the national debate on critical issues like national security, healthcare and the economy. The policy commitments Giuliani made to the American people remain vitally important to America’s future even today.
