Shaw is Out

Mike’s first deputy mayor, Marc Shaw, has resigned. Shaw and former chief-of-staff, Peter Madonia, as Ben previously noted, were the technocrats of City Hall, helping to transition Bloomberg LP into public office.

The mayor’s statement:

“For the last four years, New Yorkers have reaped the benefits of the dedication and talent of Marc Shaw. As First Deputy Mayor, Marc was the shrewd and steady hand that helped guide New York through its worst fiscal crisis in a generation. And as we tackled the rebuilding of our City after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, Marc’s vast experience was critical to stabilizing New York City’s government.

“Many of the administration’s successes bear his fingerprints, foremost among them, achieving control of New York’s Schools. His wise counsel and strategic advice have been invaluable in all aspects of government as we safely endured blackouts and transit strikes. As Marc moves on to new challenges, I wish him and his family the best. He has served our City and State for over 25 years with honor and distinction, and all New Yorkers will miss this great public servant.”
