ABSTRACT
The article features John A. Catsimatidis, chairman of Red Apple Group, a holding company for the Gristedes supermarket chain, commercial real estate, an oil refinery and gas stations. Catsimatidis says he's willing to spend perhaps $100 million to succeed Michael Bloomberg as New York City's mayor. Details of how Catsimatidis built his grocery business are outlined. A former Democrat, Catsimatidis decided to register as a Republican, because he believes no pro-business candidate could ever earn the support of the New York Democratic Party.
