From the Queens Campaigner:
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn (D-Manhattan) and state Assemblyman Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) helped Democratic Council hopeful Karen Koslowitz campaign in Forest Hills Sunday in a last-minute attempt to rally voters before the Sept. 15 primary.
Quinn and Lavine, both of whom have endorsed Koslowitz, said the candidate running for Councilwoman Melinda Katz’s (D-Forest Hills) seat representing the 29th District has already proven herself to be an effective legislator.
“When I endorse somebody, I want to make sure they get elected,” Quinn said of her efforts to help
Koslowitz campaign on Austin Street Sunday afternoon. “But Karen is not just somebody. I’ve had the luck of working with Karen for a long time, and I’ve seen her in action. As speaker, she is exactly the kind of person I want fighting for the residents of New York City.”
There you go - Karen is Christine's kind of candidate. That should tell you something.
