What are your political aspirations?
To serve Mayor
Villaraigosa in the best way I possibly can and help pull this city out
of this recession and ensure it's in better shape than it was before we
entered it.

Would you consider running for elected office?
I
have no immediate plans to even consider running for elective office. I
would never rule anything out, but one thing that has become clear from
working on the inside for so long: There are a number of ways to affect
public policy to make positive change other than holding elected
office. In many ways, elected officials are not in the strongest
position.

You have a high-stress job, how do you keep your stress level down?
I don’t.

That can’t be good.
That’s
for the doctors to determine, I suppose. This is a high-pressure job
and a high-stress job and that’s what I signed up for.

Are you partnered?
I’m single. Given the high stress and high pressure of this job, I would be perhaps the world’s worst boyfriend.
