oeNew York City’s commissioner of the office of emergency management is resigning.

Mayoral spokeswoman Marti Adams on Wednesday said Joseph Bruno will be stepping down on June 27.

The 70-year-old Bruno was appointed to the emergency management post in 2004 by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He played a large role in helping the city prepare for Superstorm Sandy, as well as several severe snowstorms.

The former judge and the city’s fire commissioner began working in city government more than 40 years ago under Mayor John Lindsay.

Adams did not say if Mayor Bill de Blasio had chosen a successor.
