GAMBIER, Ohio (AP) — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was selected to speak to graduating seniors Saturday morning at Kenyon College in Gambier in central Ohio.
The three-term mayor was elected just after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
He's an alumnus of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, working his way through school with loans and a job as a parking lot attendant.
Before his election as mayor, Bloomberg worked on Wall Street and founded the Bloomberg financial news and information service.
