Why Christine Quinn should not be re-elected in 2009

Christine Quinn:

  • violated the public trust by overturning Term Limits without a public referendum.
  • is being investigated by the U.S. attorney’s office for slush funds allocated to fictitious charities
  • is beholden to large developers and landlords
  • turned City Council into a rubber-stamp for Mayor Bloomberg’s agenda
  • has betrayed the LGBT community when politically expedient
  • is one of NYC’s lowest scorers on human rights and animal welfare

Christine Quinn has failed to use her office to push a progressive agenda that would benefit the people of the West Side. She gave Bloomberg critical support in his campaign to undo term limits. She has changed from a respected activist to being an advocate for landlords, Real Estate developers and corporations. The September 15th Democratic Primary will be your opportunity to vote Christine Quinn out of office.
