Alec Baldwin - Alec Baldwin Planning Return To School Before Running For Mayor

Actor Alec Baldwin has ruled himself out of the 2013 race for New York mayor - because he wants to return to school to learn all about politics and government before he gets serious about running for office.
The 30 Rock star made his political aspirations known earlier this year (11), when he hinted at plans to quit Hollywood and launch a bid for office in the Big Apple.
He was reported to be considering challenging current mayor Michael Bloomberg for the top job in the 2013 elections, but now insists he would be too busy with his TV commitments to properly campaign for the political post.
But Baldwin admits he also needs to school himself in the basics of politics and do some research about the workings of New York before he opts to officially declare his bid for office, and he's looking into enrolling in a master's programme in the autumn of 2012 "to help me better understand what the fiscal imperatives of that job are".
Baldwin tells the New York Times, "What's the reality of the city unions, of contracts, agreements, teachers, infrastructure, decentralising, everything? And utilities... how does it all work?"
Baldwin is under contract until April (12) to film his final season for 30 Rock.
