CBS NY reports that former MTA commish/Brooklyn Heights resident/BHB Ten 2012 member Joe Lhota has made his bid for NYC mayor official:
CBS NY: Lhota officially entered the race Thursday morning after filing documents with the Board of Elections and the city’s Campaign Finance Board.
He also launched his campaign website Joelhotaformayor.com.
Lhota, a Republican, served as Rudy Giuliani’s budget director, finance commissioner and deputy mayor for operations during Giuliani’s term as mayor from 1994 until 2001. Giuliani has said he’d endorse Lhota if he ran for mayor.
And naturally he took the news to The Twitter:
