U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Jo White said her enforcement program will emulate the “Broken Windows” strategy used by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, pursuing small violations to avert a culture where laws are treated as toothless guidelines.
With Washington paralyzed by a partisan spending battle and a government shutdown, New York mayoral candidate Joseph Lhota sought to distance himself from fellow Republicans in the first debate of the general election.
Some of New York’s most prominent gay Democrats are holding a $1,000-per-person fundraiser for mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio in what hosts are calling the most significant embrace of the front-runner.
Joseph Lhota was Rudy Giuliani’s deputy on Sept. 11 and head of the agency that brought back the subways after Hurricane Sandy. He says that makes him the most qualified candidate to keep New York City from reverting to the days of crime and dysfunction.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, strolling the Wildwood boardwalk for 90 minutes, belonged to anyone who wanted to gab about Hurricane Sandy rebuilding or razz him about his beloved New York Mets baseball team.
Joseph Lhota celebrated his victory in New York’s Republican mayoral primary with a 17-minute speech in a packed Manhattan ballroom. He said his dad was a city cop and his mother worked so her kids could attend parochial school.
