City Hall Dispatch: It depends on what the meaning of "maintain" is

Video via Azi

At the mayor's Q and A today, he was asked about his dressing-down of our Newsday colleague (and weblebrity) Michael Frazier.

The Youtube video has apparently gotten 10,000 hits so, naturally, the mayor denied anything of the sort had ever occurred.

Frazier meanwhile, in a pointed swipe, asked the mayor about the "maintenance" of a new playground at a morning ribbon-cutting, and the mayor, apparently used the word "maintain" himself.

For what it's worth, we asked Frazier yesterday how he was holding up in the whole thing.

He shrugged it off.

"I'm fine, man. Everybody's coming up to me like I need to go see Dr. Phil or something."
