Bloomberg ’09 Is ‘Active’

Michael Bloomberg’s re-election campaign filed paperwork with the State Board of Election, saying his mayoral campaign is “active.”

The campaign is headquartered out of the 19th Floor of 800 Third Avenue, where the mayor’s accountants are located.

The treasurer is Diane Rizzo, who was also treasurer for the mayor’s 2005 race, and who was involved in Bloomberg-related efforts before that.

Bloomberg has repeatedly said it’s too early to start campaigning, and has declined to get drawn into any back-and-forth with his likely opponents. But he has quietly assembled a campaign operation, hiring a campaign manager, acquiring the services of Howard Wolfson and, maybe soon, Hank Sheinkopf.
