According to the Times, Mayor Bloomberg initially offered the schools chancellor position to famed Harlem Children's Zone founder Geoffrey Canada before he turned to Hearst president Cathie Black. But guess what he told Black when he was wooing her for the position. "What he said to me is, 'You're the first person I've offered this job to,’" Black said on Good Day New York today.
