De Blasio vs. Cuomo
The mayor of New York City and the governor of New York recently spoke again, for the first time, after Cuomo and the NYC Council worked out a deal with ride-sharing service Uber.
After the announcement was made by de Blasio last week, NYC City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said the city council and not the mayor had done the work to reach a temporary operating deal.
Cuomo then weighed in and said he didn't think de Blasio was even in town during the negotiations.
De Blasio and Cuomo said on Tuesday that they had spoken to each other, but it was not clear if their relationship was still icy.
“It was an airing of concerns and I wouldn’t say a resolution was reached,” said de Blasio during a news conference.
“I talk to the mayor about any relevant issues that we have to talk about. The drama they talk between the mayor and I is nice, but I pride myself on getting things done and working with people who have been at odds for a long time,” said Cuomo during a radio interview.
The details of the conversation were not clear.
