NEW YORK – Gov. Kenneth Mapp left the territory on September 3 and went to New York for a culture fest in the park and a parade in the city — and he apparently made quite an impression — because he was still making news long after he left the Big Apple.
On September 14 in her famous celebrities Page Six column in the New York Post, Cindy Adams quotes Mapp this way:
“Tourism’s up 10 percent. But I’m a politician. Remember, I have to manage my lies.”
