NEW YORK (AP) _ Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said Wednesday he will talk to the city’s candidates for mayor and try to come up with a plan that would give him a continuing role in New York’s recovery from the World Trade Center disaster.
Giuliani was not specific about whether he was seeking some kind of extension of his term, considering a run for a third term, or merely looking for a role in the administration of his successor
``I want to do something that unifies the city because I love this city,″ said Giuliani, who is barred under the City Charter from serving a third term when his current term is up on Dec. 31.
In yet another indication of Giuliani’s intentions, the Republican mayor contacted the Democratic speaker of the state Assembly on Wednesday, seeking support for legislation that could extend his stay in office.
