纽约时代广场一名靠与游客合影为生的“裸体牛仔”打算竞选纽约市长,称要将政府透明度提高到新水平。这位牛仔10年以来一直在时代广场谋生,其标志性形象为脚穿牛仔靴,头戴牛仔帽,身穿紧身白色内裤,游客与他合影需要先付钱。在竞选声明中,这位牛仔表示要在减税、旅游业、同性恋婚姻、公共交通以及国土安全方面提出新政策。在今年11月的纽约市长竞选中,他将与现任市长迈克尔布隆伯格同台竞争。

A man who makes his living posing for pictures with tourists as "The Naked Cowboy" in New York's Times Square plans to run for mayor on a platform of "bringing transparency to a whole new level."

A fixture1 in Times Square for a decade, Robert Burck has made a profitable business from strumming a guitar dressed only in cowboy boots, hat and tight-fitting white briefs, asking tourists to pay a fee to take a picture with him.

He makes appearances around the United States and in the media, and markets products ranging from underwear to comics.

A statement announcing a news conference on Wednesday to launch his candidacy said the Naked Cowboy's platform would include a stimulus2 plan for small business.

"No one knows how to do more with less than yours truly, and that's the kind of thinking I plan on sharing with my fellow New Yorkers when you elect me," Burck said in the statement, promising3 new ideas on tax breaks, tourism, gay marriage, public transport and homeland security.

His main opponent in November's election will be incumbent4 Michael Bloomberg, who appears to be sailing toward re-election for a third term in the absence of a strong competitor.
