Hats In The Ring: Vance for D.A., Liu for Comptroller
Councilmember John Liu announced for city comptroller yesterday. Liu was earlier expected to run for public advocate, but Mark Green's recent entry to that race may have spooked him. Liu has been well-funded in his council runs, and is best known in recent years for his chairmanship of the council's transportation committee, and for leading a protest against CW11 for reporting mouse bits in Chinese food, where he screamed obscenities at a reporter. He'll face councilmembers Melinda Katz, David Weprin, and David Yassky.
