New York City Republican mayoral hopeful Joseph Lhota said that everything great that has happened over the past 20 years is quite fragile and he said this election is going to have consequences.
Former transit official Joe Lhota has gotten the Conservative Party’s choice for New York City mayor. That gives Lhota a spot on November’s ballot regardless what happens in his quest for the Republican nomination.
“I’m running for mayor because I’ve been fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it my entire life. And I hope I get a second chance to work for you.”

New York City mayoral race frontrunner Christine Quinn was bombarded Wednesday with questions about the so-called second coming of Anthony Weiner.
Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner is continuing his effort to rehabilitate his public image – and possibly burnish his credentials for a potential return to politics.
An article in New York Times Magazine said Weiner’s “political committee spent more than $100,000 on polling and research.” It also said his wife Huma Abedin is starting to think he should run.
Last month, Quinn announced city lawmakers had reached a deal to install an inspector general to monitor the nation’s biggest police department following criticism over the NYPD’s stop and frisk policy and widespread surveillance of Muslims.
“All of the great that happened, the foundation that Mayor Giuliani built during his term and that Mike Bloomberg has built on top of that, they’re quite fragile,” he told WCBS 880 morning anchors Michael Wallace and Pat Carroll.

New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio announced his candidacy for mayor Sunday, citing a need to bring leadership and services to every community in the city.

When the storm hit, most people in the Levittown area were in the dark for up to two weeks, but not Gregory Lombardi, the rising executive in the MTA who allegedly pulled off a power play.
Last month, the MTA said the repairs would take at least a year. But on Thursday, the agency said it estimates that fully restoring the station would take much longer and cost $600 million.
The former Metropolitan Transportation Authority chairman announced on Twitter that he is now a candidate for mayor of New York City.
