New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is ahead in a recent poll. Based on her performance at the NY Law School breakfast, I would say that Speaker Quinn will continue to lead the pack come September 10.
Whether term limits or member items and now redistricting, Christine Quinn's approach has always been to play the angles for her own gain and advancement. We need a mayor who is focused on the needs of New Yorkers, not on their own ambition.
I am part of a NYC lunch group that has met for lunch once a month for the past fifteen years and is still going strong. There are six of us, all in our mid-eighties. Some of us have been friends for 72 years; others, a mere 50 years.
