As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, when a mayoral candidate prefaces a comment with “I know I’m going to get in trouble for this,” he’s usually right.
“If he ever was to get close to being mayor, I’d be out campaigning door to door against that,” Port Authority PBA head Paul Nunziato told Silverman. “It’s totally mind-boggling that he has no concept of what the Port Authority Police do.”
