Mayor Bill de Blasio is making his weekly appearance on WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show:

Leads off with plaudits for 'In The Heights', which The Post also gave a glowing review!…
De Blasio acknowledges that he's going to go right to the wire on deciding if he'll reveal his ballot/endorsement in the mayoral primary
Q1 from caller is about changes to G&T:

De Blasio says "new model" coming for G&T this September, which I think is the first time he's put a date-ish on it? But still absolutely no details.
Q2 is about a devastating Jackson Heights fire, and a new request for aid from tenants displaced.

De Blasio says that families are being offered stabilized/income bracketed units -- tho not all in the same nabe, but in Queens.
Q3: Was from a man who said he can't get a problematic subletter out of a room. Blas took the info.
Q4: Is a question about COVID regulations in schools -- and seems to be focused on after school program fees? (But I'm not entirely clear)
Lehrer asks Blas about the CCRB ruling that the cop in the Kawaski Trawick case should be sacked. Except, it seems like the Police Commissioner has already cleared the cop --…
And Hizzoner is going in circles on this answer -- talking about how the CCRB got it right and the PD got it right, even though they came to opposite conclusions.
Brian Lehrer said he's confused by the situation -- and I am too.
Q5: Is a question about retiree health care system. It's the second or the third week in a row.
"Brian, respectfully, that's just not what happened"

Guess the topic
De Blasio says there's no difference between traditional neighborhood beat cops and the SRG than wearing a helmet -- which is just not accurate.
"Media reports that turned out not to be the whole story," says de Blasio about police reporting in this town.

Which, as a reminder, that was his spin last summer for five months until his own DOI tore it apart --…
And with that, we're done!

OK, let's try this again, since they're transcribed, here are all the answers on bikes and licenses (and they're all kind of basically the same?)
So, two things to watch. There are candidates-- Yang, Garcia, Maya -- who try to thread the motorized versus unmotorized thread; and Adams and Stringer who just talk about bikes and not motorized devices
"I do think we should be licensing e-bikes and any vehicle that can go above a certain speed," said Yang, who nixed the idea of bike licenses when pressed on bicycle riders who "disobey the law."

*New York City, edt.
You can also listen to the debate on WCBS-880 and WINS-1010

Maurice DeBois and Marcia Kramer are your co-moderators! And there is an opening threat to mute the mics if people don't respect the time limits.

Yup, but these Emerson polls feel like they're really testing the edge.

It's doubtful Garcia ever jumped ~15 into the lead (only to massively fall back) and I don't think Maya jumped ~10 with Stringer still polling at 10.
Like, who is the Garcia voter who moves to Maya because of AOC?
Especially because undecideds ticked back up too?

So, they're arguing lots of things that no one is arguing:
1) No one said the memo was the sole driver or the principal driver. They said it was a contributor and the data shows it might have increased the already high death toll by 1,000 people --…
2) They're arguing that patients had nowhere else to go, even though they had largely empty temporary hospitals and the hospital ship that could have taken the transfers.
There were requests for such transfers that were ignored.

"There's a race for mayor in New York City and many people have been speaking to me about it," says Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as the clock moves from 'change-the-subject' o'clock to 'twist-the-knife-in-Bill-de-Blasio' o'clock
"NYCHA is an ongoing tragedy"
Also, remember that Gov. Cuomo promised NYCHA $550m, but:
- Barred $100m from going to structural uses
- Then took years to okay the allocation of the remaining $450m
