Top New York Police Official May Be Eyeing Mayor’s Job


The New York Times speculates that Raymond W. Kelly, the city’s popular police commissioner, may be planning a 2009 run for mayor of New York, despite the fact that Kelly has repeatedly denied it.

The newspaper reports that Kelly has had talks with a Republican political consultant and some Republicans have said they asked him to run. Other sources have told the newspaper that some Democrats are also prompting him to enter the race.

“He has had more publicity than any other person in New York, other than the mayor,” Howard J. Rubenstein, a public relations executive, told the Times.
