City Councilman John Liu officially announced plans to run for city comptroller Sunday.
Liu says his background in finance makes him the perfect candidate for the job.
In a statement, Liu says, "Now more than ever, we need a Comptroller who will root out waste and inefficiency as budget cuts are imposed, and ensure accountability and equal opportunity as billions in stimulus funding arrive."
Liu denied earlier reports that he was planning to run for public advocate.
And it turns out that black people love him. Who knew?
