We don’t know what went down during Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio’s dinner earlier this month, but it seems there are still some lingering issues between the governor and the mayor. In an interview with the New York Times, de Blasio reflected on his rocky 2015, taking responsibility for his mistakes and saying, “I want to do better.” “It’s pretty obvious that some things worked as we hoped, and other things didn’t,” the mayor continued. “I’m sober about the fact that, you know, you try a lot of things in leadership and you don’t expect every single one of them to work. You just got to keep learning.”

Asked if he regrets publicly feuding with Cuomo, de Blasio said, “I’m satisfied it was the right approach,” adding, “There’s certainly been some good work we’ve done together with the governor and with Albany in recent months.” Cuomo spokesperson Dani Lever responded, “We wish the mayor a Merry Christmas. Here’s to learning from mistakes and a better 2016.”
