2008_08_parsons.jpgTime Warner chairman Richard Parsons, rumored to be one of big business’s top hopes to run for mayor in 2009, has definitively denied that he will be throwing his hat into the ring, reports NY Magazine. 'I’ve never woken up a day in my life and said, ‘What I really want to be is mayor,’ ” Parsons said. Among those in favor of a Parsons candidacy was Bloomberg himself. While the mayor has said repeatedly that he has no interest in running for a third term, Parsons refused to let the issue die. The executive, sharing other business executives' sentiments, said, “My view is that Michael Bloomberg should be the mayor again, and we should work with him to change the term limits.”
