Times Square fixture THE NAKED COWBOY launched his historic bid for Mayor of New York City today. The announcement took place in Times Square this morning.
With a promise 'to do more with less,’ the ever-popular Cowboy is committed to bringing transparency to a whole new level while getting the city back on its feet.
The Naked Cowboy’s platform speaks to the real issues facing us, and will cultivate the rebirth of the small businesses that made New York City what it is today. Known as the "Naked Stimulus Package," the plan includes micro loans, tax holidays and other incentives to help small businesses thrive. Other points of Naked's platform include Taxes (if you’re rich, stop whining and pay your taxes), Transportation (taxi call buttons on every city corner), Homeland Security (as mayor he will keep the city’s security on high alert, making frequent stops at the tunnels, bridges, and guard posts of every building), Gay Marriage (as an ordained minister and he’d love to marry all citizens of NYC, not just the straight shooters), and of course Tourism (he plans to build a Times Square Wedding Chapel and establish a billion dollar wedding business that will rival Las Vegas).
In Naked’s words, “Small businesses are the key to getting this city back on its feet. We need better growth initiatives, but also smarter spending. It’s time to tighten our belt across the board. Of course that's just a saying though, 'cause I don’t even wear a belt – and that’s my point. Nobody knows how to do more with less than yours truly, and that’s the kind of leadership this city needs during these challenging times.”
The Naked Cowboy has been a fixture in Times Square since 1998. He's built a successful global brand with just a pair of underwear, a great work ethic, and an entrepreneurial spirit that's unsurpassed. Naked’s run for mayor is the natural extension of his decade-long engagement in Times Square, where he's listened to the needs of New Yorkers and tourists alike from every race, class and walk of life imaginable.
