Adams doubles down on support for controversial FDNY boss, marches with her in St. Patrick’s Day Parade


Mayor Eric Adams reaffirmed his strong support for embattled Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh on Friday before marching side-by-side with her in the annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, amid tensions between her and her top chiefs that have led several officials to resign their titles in recent weeks.

“Well, you know, last year I was hanging out with the police commissioner, this year, I’m hanging out with the FDNY commissioner, next year it will probably be the Department of Sanitation,” Hizzoner told reporters before marching with Kavanagh down Manhattan’s 5th Avenue on Friday afternoon.
