    Well Lhota is certainly more popular than the guy who ditched us for Tokyo, Jay Walder. He didn't do much.

    He did pretty well, but it was a team effort.

    Cuomo and his office were the ones issuing a good chunk of the MTA-related press statements/releases in the aftermath of Sandy, however... Not a big deal, just food for thought...

    How much credit does he deserve? A lot. Not just with Sandy, but being a more efficient chairman than Jay Walder, restoring some of the 2010 cuts, and introducing FASTRACK. Sorry for the tangent.

    Yup, Hong Kong MTR is in Tokyo.

    But in all sincerity, I believe that Lhota deserves a lot of credit.

    When I think of the two leaders who deserve the most credit, I think of Governor Cuomo and NYCT President Prendergast. Not Lhota.

    If Lhota decides to run for mayor, my opinion of him will decline. It would only prove that he is a politician doing what Republican leaders ask him to do by taking advantage of his popularity and for taking more credit than he actually deserves.

    I like the guy... He's frank and honest and he doesn't mince his words. I've seen him in person on numerous occasions and he seems quite personable. He's trying to be fiscally responsible and improve service, not an easy feat, but he's done quite well.
