During one of our country’s most trying
times, Rudolph Guiliani proved to be “America’s
Mayor,” working to calm not only the troubled inhabitants
of New York City, but the entire nation. He encouraged Americans
to resume their lives — to travel, to shop, to eat out — as
a means of showing the world our nation’s resolve.
“He [Mr. Giuliani] proved a leader among
officials in every way… It is a tremendous honor to welcome
Mr. Giuliani to the National Restaurant Association Restaurant,
Hotel-Motel Show,” says Craig Miller, FMP, owner of “Guest”
Food Service and convention chairman for the 2003 Show.
After earning a law degree from New York University
Law School, Giuliani’s distinguished legal career included
several executive positions in the offices of the U.S. Attorney
in New York and Washington, DC. In 1993, he was elected the
107th Mayor of the City of New York. He was re-elected for
a second term by a wide margin in 1997. After September 11,
2001, the rest of the world found out what New Yorkers already
knew, that Giuliani was a determined leader who could provide
remarkable strength and stability at a time of great uncertainty.
