Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo both skipped Wednesday’s funeral for retired NYPD Detective Luis Alvarez, who spent his dying days fighting for fellow first responders sickened by the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The absences come a little more than a month after both officials were no-shows at a May 30 ceremony to dedicate a Ground Zero memorial to the 2,000-plus victims killed by exposure to toxins during the recovery effort according to The New York Post.
