De Blasio swings back at Cuomo with letter seeking aid to help New York City’s homeless

Still seething over Governor Andrew Cuomo’s remarks earlier this week that New York City appeared to be “teetering” on disaster, Mayor Bill de Blasio threw the case back at the governor Saturday, urging him to support the city’s efforts to tackle homelessness rather than undermine it through budget cuts.

During his March 3 press briefing, Cuomo rebuffed calls from some elected officials to resign over the wave of scandals that struck him, specifically the sexual harassment allegations made by three women. The governor claimed he was respecting the wishes of the voters, rather than the politicians, but then pivoted to say there was too much left for him to do.
