Here's the complete, unedited video of Mayor Dawn Zimmer on Friday during the Q&A portion of the press conference:
Earlier in the morning, the mayor attended a Columbus Day event at Columbus Park run by the County. One report said when the mayor mentioned the hospital had been saved, the reaction from those present was absolute silence.
Another source said she was applauded at the completion of her remarks.
In attendance were Council members Terry Castellano and Beth Mason and Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise and Mayor Dawn Zimmer spoke.
