However, there have been some unfortunate obstacles that have prevented Marbury and Adams from making this a done deal. Despite Adams’ best effort to convince Gov. Cuomo & Mayor Bill de Blasio to carry out Marbury’s plan, the two weren’t sold right away.
Eric Adams spoke on this late last week:
“We’ve been communicating back and forth with the city and state, and for some reason they are saying they don’t need any more masks, but the hospitals are saying they do.”
Nevertheless, when later contacted by The Post, state Department of Health spokeswoman Jill Montag said she “had no idea who the borough president spoke to” and that the state officials “in charge” of buying masks “want to talk to Stephon!” – New York Post
