Shorris, who confirmed to me that he is taking the job, has served in an array of upper-level city and state positions over the years in policy-focused positions. He was Ed Koch’s finance commissioner, a deputy budget director, and a deputy chancellor in the Department of Education in the Bloomberg administration. He did a teaching stint at Princeton before being picked up by Spitzer for the Port Authority job, and was then forced out by David Paterson when he became governor.
