From the Daily News:
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is moving Council staffers out of City Hall and into the disaster zone to help victims of superstorm Sandy, the Daily News has learned.
At least a dozen staffers are being sent into the devastated communities, with each staffer’s skills matched to the areas where they are needed most.
For example, Council finance staffer John Lisyanskiy, who speaks Russian, will be sent to Coney Island, where there are large numbers of Russian-speaking residents.
“Somebody else can take care of the finances for now,” she said.
Quinn is a likely candidate for mayor next year. Intended or not, such assistance will give her and the Council greater visibility.
Shouldn't this have been done the day after the storm, not 2 weeks later?
Someone has no shame.
