Espaillat On de Blasio’s Absence



NYS Senator Adriano Espaillat hosted a pre-parade breakfast this morning featuring all city and statewide electeds, save one. ¬†Governor Cuomo, NYS Comptroller TomDiNapoli, NYS AG Eric Schneiderman, NYC Public Advocate Tish James, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer and NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito were among the attendees, but Mayor Bill de Blasio did not attend. ¬†Afterwards I asked Senator Espaillat whether he had invited Mayor de Blasio – here’s what he had to say.
