Former New York City Finance and Housing Commissioner Abraham Biderman praised Mayor-elect Bill DeBlasio for naming Anthony Shorris to serve as his first deputy mayor.
“I know Anthony Shorris very well,” said Mr. Biderman, a member of the board of trustees of Agudath Israel of America. “We were colleagues for many years in the Koch administration and he succeeded me as New York City Finance Commissioner. He very much understands our community.”
“We worked together for almost a decade; he is knowledgeable, competent and deals well with the issues.” Mr. Biderman added.
