Mayor Joseph Lhota? Calls For MTA Chief's Candidacy Continue
|MTA Chief Joseph Lhota|
The quick recovery has led to chatter that MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota should throw his hat in the ring to run for mayor in next year's election -- again, despite the fact that the MTA doesn't exactly have the best reputation amongst the millions of New Yorkers who rely on it to get around every day.
What a difference a hurricane makes.
Lhota -- who served as a City budget director before getting tapped to head the MTA last year -- likely would run as a Republican.
Other potential mayoral hopefuls include City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Comptroller John Liu, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, and a collection of other pols, including rumors that shamed former Congressman Anthony Weiner might take a shot at City Hall.
But would you support Lhota?
