Gristedes owner John Catsimatidis once again believes he's well-suited to be New York's next mayor, and now he's made it official: Just like he did in 2009, the billionaire has put up $1 million of his own money toward his bid, and tells the Post that he's hiring staff to run his campaign this week. He's also flexible. "Am I a Republican? Yes." He told the Times last month, adding, "Am I a Democrat? Yes. Am I a conservative? Yes. Am I a liberal? Yes." He will run this one out as a Republican.
