American independent politician, philanthropist, and businessman who served three consecutive terms as New York City's mayor. He is the founder and owner of Bloomberg L.P., a global financial data and media and he has a net worth of over $40 billion, making him one of the wealthiest individuals in the world.
He was a parking lot attendant through college to pay for his tuition at Johns Hopkins University.
In 2012, he attempted to ban the sale of many sweetened drinks more than 16 ounces (473 ml.) in volume, but the proposal was struck down by New York's Supreme Court just hours before it was going to go into effect.
His parents are William Henry and Charlotte Rubens Bloomberg. He has two daughters with Susan Brown, whom he was married to from 1975 to 1993. He later began a relationship with Diana Taylor in 2000.
He was preceded by New York City mayor Fiorello La Guardia.
