Former MTA chief Joe Lhota has garnered the Conservative Party’s backing for the Republican nomination for mayor of New York City, reports the New York Daily News.

Lhota appeared with Conservative Party leaders at City Hall on Thursday, among them chairman Mike Long, who had nothing but praise for Lhota.

“How the next mayor handles our budget and safety challenges will determine the direction of our city,” Long said.

“Joe has spent his entire career managing complex organizations, while keeping costs under control and enhancing services.

He is the only candidate in this race that voters can trust to meet these challenges and ensure our city continues to flourish.”

Lhota, a former deputy to ex-Mayor Rudy Giuliani who's also worked in investment banking, will be battling businessman John Catsimatidis and non-profit founder George McDonald for the GOP nomination.

Lhota laid out his vision for New York City under his leadership.

“Sound fiscal policy, an accountable education system and keeping our streets safe from violent criminals are at the forefront of my candidacy,” Lhota said.

“New York City has made great strides over the past twenty years, and I will fight to strengthen that progress as the next mayor.”
