Former MTA Chairman Joe Lhota announces run for mayor — finally
Joe Lhota announced via Twitter Thursday morning that he is running for mayor.
“All my followers should follow joelhota4mayor,” he tweeted, “the campaign has begun!”
Lhota filed papers with the city Board of Elections and Campaign Finance Board this morning.
His campaign website declares he will be “a mayor for all New York,” with the tagline “Proven Leadership.”
A recent Quinnipiac poll found that many voters still don’t know who Joe Lhota is.
