Manhattan-born Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano didn’t have much time for a relaxed homecoming during a visit to City Hall this morning at which Mayor Bloomberg lobbied her for more federal dollars for local anti-terrorism initiatives, the DN’s Kate Lucadamo reports.

After a brief meeting with Napolitano (the former Arizona governor, who was confirmed to her new post with the Obama administration late last month) and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, Bloomberg told reporters: “She understands how important it is to protect this city, the nation’s economic engine, from terrorists’ attacks.” (NY Daily News)
