I joined Team Quinn for a rally outside ABC Studios and NBC Studios in NYC where Christine Quinn participated at the Democratic Mayoral Candidates Debates on August 13 and earlier this week on Tuesday, September 3.
A number of volunteers and I rallied in support of Chris Quinn's run for mayor of NYC as she met with the other candidates for some of the last debates before the primary. New Yorkers from all walks of life attended; there was strong support from college students and senior citizens, there were mothers with their infants in strollers, business professionals in suits and union members, and more. The sidewalks were awash with placards and totems: Christine Quinn for NYC Mayor, the Mighty Quinn, We Love CQ, Women for Quinn etc. Chants "Win with Quinn!" filled the air.
The Greater New York Steering Committee is so proud to support Quinn, an experienced leader who will take care of New Yorkers and New York City. She will continue to protect the rights of women, immigrants and LGBT, provide vital health care services, help with jobs and economic opportunities, fight for quality education and lead NYC on the world stage. She’s got the record and the right stuff!
