Rudy Giuliani, JD Biography

Title:
Former Mayor of New York City, NY
Position:
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“So we started paying attention to the things that were being ignored…. the street-level drug-dealing; the prostitution; the graffiti, all these things that were deteriorating the city. So we said, ‘We’re going to pay attention to that,’ and it worked. It worked because we not only got a big reduction in that, and an improvement in the quality of life, but massive reductions in homicide, and New York City turned from the crime capital of America to the safest large city in the country for five, six years in a row.”
