Up Close: Joe Lhota
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Joe Lhota earned high praise for getting the subways back up and running soon after Superstorm Sandy.
But in December, moments after implementing a fare hike, Lhota quit his job as chairman of the MTA.
He's now running for New York City Mayor.
Lhota is a Bronx-born Republican, and served as former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's deputy mayor and budget director.
We'll ask him what a Lhota administration would be like.
We'll also talk with Bergen County prosecutor John Molinelli, whose office produced a training video for teachers and law enforcement officers, showing what to do if a gunman gets inside a school.
And Eyewitness News investigative reporter Jim Hoffer takes a look at the latest development in the NYPD's controversial stop and frisk program: a new device that may cut down the number of patdowns by showing police ahead of time just who has a gun.
Watch Up Close with Diana Williams every Sunday morning at 11:00 on Channel 7.
