City Comptroller John Liu is keeping a busy schedule, visiting two senior centers in Chinatown and heading to another scheduled event in Flushing this afternoon.
As with other, similar appearances he's made recently, Liu was there to wish seniors a happy Thanksgiving, but also offered them implicit reassurances about his political condition amid federal probes into his campaign fund-raising.
At a senior center at Confucius Plaza, he told the clients in attendance, "I want you not to worry about me but to take care of yourselves, because, it is, as I said, going to be getting a little more cold."
Liu spoke in English and sprinkled a few words of Mandarin into his remarks. His remarks were also translated into Cantonese.
State Senator Daniel Squadron showed up at the senior center and briefly sat next to Liu before addressing the crowd and leaving.
I was there along along with a reporter from the World Journal, a Chinese daily newspaper, and a photographer from the New York Times.
After the Confucious Plaza even, Liu left for an appearance in Flushing.
