This is from Daily Gotham, and if the site doesn't crash (as it seems to every few minutes), you can read the rest here.

Christine Quinn is so unprofessional. I hope the voters of her district hand her walking papers this third time around.

Good for him, she needs to be put in her place.

Can you imagine having such an inflated ego and sense of self-importance that you refuse to allow someone to sign onto a proclamation honoring an elderly woman? Real low, Chris, even for you.

Bryan said...

That's just disgusting, hope word of this gets out to voters in her district.

Is there some backstory to this? Beside political disagreements, what does Quinn have against Avella?

He votes against her all the time and they were once both mayoral contenders.

its sad to see thats the way a councilman gets treated even sadder is the fact that the public is treated even worse

Avella doesn't kiss her ass nor the mayors like the majority of the council. Someone like Quinn can't afford to be challenged by - or compared to - someone who is actually hoenst.

Let's not forget that this woman has retained a criminal defense attorney, which I believe the taxpeyers are footing the bill for.

I have noticed that any elective official that is worth his or her salt, is always marginalized by those elective officials that hold the money strings & power. It's as if those politicians that speak out for the public on issues that concern them don't exist. If the poltiicans have the developers money backing them up, you are toast.

You find this across the board. Take a look at the 'leading' preservationists from Queens.

Take a look at the grassroots.

'Nuff said.

At first, I though this was just another fairy tale regarding Quinn.

But, alas, the report is true.

I find it very, very queer that Quinn has no self control.

Could it be that her hands are so full of self-love, that she has neither the professionalism nor the brains to be speaker of the NYC Council?

Third world government for a world class city.
