After Taking Hit, Cuomo Calmly Returns Fire On De Blasio


cuomNew York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is responding to criticisms levied at him by Mayor Bill de Blasio.

De Blasio aired his grievances last week over how New York City fared in the just-ended Albany legislative session.

He said Cuomo, a fellow Democrat, had disappointed him “at every turn” and carries out a “vendetta” against those who oppose him.

Cuomo had largely ignored the comments until Tuesday.

The governor said the mayor was “obviously frustrated” with how things went in Albany and suggested that he did not know how to compromise.

He also chided de Blasio for choosing to “air his frustration publicly.” The governor has repeatedly thwarted the mayor’s agenda.

De Blasio is currently out of state on vacation. His aides did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
