From the Daily News:
Former Mayor Ed Koch, fresh out of the hospital and gearing up for his birthday party at Gracie Mansion this week, is backing Melinda Katz for Queens BP.
"She is the one candidate in the race that raises the level of conversation about balancing economic development with the community in Queens," Koch said in a brief statement.
"As Chair of the City Council's Land Use Committee she achieved that balance citywide," Koch said in a brief statement. It is why I supported her for city comptroller in 2009, and why I am supporting her now for Queens Borough President in 2013."
In addition to her time on the Council, Katz has been a state Assemblywoman and corporate lawyer, as well as a lobbyist.
Here's a jingle inspired by this development:
K-O-C-H KOCH 4 KATZ
