Montag asked a reported for assistance in contacting Marbury.
De Blasio spokeswoman, Julia Arredondo, confirmed that Adams reached out.But the details after the first contact are murky, to say the least.
She forwarded the email to a reporter.The email was from Adams along with a response from Daniel Symon, director of the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services. The note said: “Hello BP Adams. If the N95 check out, that is a decent price. If you’d like to put us in touch with the supplier directly, we’d be happy to vet this and move towards purchase."
Apparently Adams never responded.However, Borough Hall is “open" to working with de Blasio’s team “and want to do whatever it takes to get these masks to our hospitals and first responders."
There is clearly a lack of communication.
