On Sunday morning’s “News Conference” (broadcast on the mothership, KNBC), Conan Nolan interviews developer Rick Caruso on the site of his newest venture: The Americana at Brand.
Throughout the piece, Caruso talks a lot about how the Grove, and now the Americana, have helped revitalize parts of Los Angeles, and that he’s dumbfounded at the lack of municipal rail lines around L.A… and he hints that he’d be interested in public office when the time is right.
But, he says, “it would have to be in an executive position. I’m just wired that way.”
Caruso also argues that wealthy entrepreneurs make for the best politicians, because he says they are only worried about doing a good job, not winning elections.
Above is a five minute-ish clip from the interview where he eludes to, what I think, is his suggesting that a race for Mayor, or possibly Governor, could be in his future.
