City Council Speaker Corey Johnson eyes late entry into Comptroller’s race


City Council Speaker Corey Johnson is considering a run for city comptroller nearly six months after abruptly cancelling his bid for mayor, he told The New York Times.

Johnson, who in the midst of his second and final term in the City Council, is exploring a run to serve as the city’s chief financial officer nearly five months after he exited the mayoral race due to personal reasons. He is vowing to make a final decision on the comptroller race within the next two weeks.
