Is Quinn a goner?

NY1 POLL: 76% SAY QUINN SHOULD NOT BE RE-ELECTED

New York, NY. September 3, 2009. Yetta Kurland, who is now being acknowledged as having a real chance of winning the City Council race in the 3rd District, is encouraged by a snap poll conducted by NY1 and aired last night showing that only 24% of the respondents said her opponent Christine Quinn should be re-elected, and an overwhelming 76% said she should not be re-elected to City Council.

"It is more than a significant spread" stated Kurland. "At the same time people have already made clear that they want their elected officials to serve for two terms and only two terms. I believe they will make this clear for a 3rd time at the Democratic Primary on Tuesday, September 15th.

Yetta Kurland is running against Christine Quinn, who many say is having serious difficulties getting support for her bid for re-election due to her decision to extend term limits against voter will, her too-close relationship with Republican Mayor Bloomberg and the slush fund scandal which she is still under federal investigation for.

"We have not been polling, we have been talking to the people of the 3rd district, and what they are telling us is that they want change. They want someone who can stand up for them in City Hall to stop overdevelopment and be a voice for our community. I will be that person."

Kurland is running on a platform of restoring the voice of our community and has received dozens of endorsements from community leaders, democratic clubs, good government groups and local organizations.

John Phillips, Executive Director of the New York League of Humane Voters, the State's largest and most influential lobby for animal welfare, said "the 52% gap in this poll is greater than any margin of error that could exist. It's clear the people think two terms is more than enough and that Christine Quinn has got to go."

Quinn has been the Commissar's gofer and his only gonad.

So, why not now she becomes a goner - along with him.

Christine (Slush Fund) Quinn is toast. People aren't stupid and are on to her. She's Mayor Mike's puppet and her strings are going to be cut. Please vote out all politicians who voted for a third term and who were AGAINST the will of the people.

Can we vote AGAINST Quinn if we do not live in that district? Please...

NO THIRD TERM also applies to VALLONE, BARRON, KOPPELL, BREWER, GERSON, STEWART and a slew of others.

And let's not forget SCOTT STRINGER who is going for his third term. thumbs down to all of them.

NO THIRD TERM means NO THIRD TERM.

Stop preaching to the choir on this blog -

1. get out there and organize protests in their faces,

2. speak up and ask embarressing questions in public events,

3. challange the press to stop giving press releases from hacks and developers as news,

4. write letters to the editors

ACT UP!

"Rosie" Quinn should step dowm - as the leader she was found to have the bigest slush fund - your taxpayer dollars that she doled out to favorites. That she was not prosecuted says much as the entire city Gov would fall with her.

Quinn must go. She is vulnerable. Getting her out of office will cripple her Boss Mike B. She is his Achille's heel. It is absolutely imperative that people against Bloomberg work hard to end her career.The City Council is supposed to be a checks and balances entity, protecting the people from power grabs. That is the way government is supposed to work.

Quinn has made deals with the hopes that her turn will come; Perhaps after Mike is through with his fourth term. But he will drop her in a minute when he no longer needs her. He has no respect for women, we know that.She is a fool to go along with him.

Get Quinn out, and you wound Mike.
