In her video, Windsor compellingly describes Christine Quinn’s drive and compassion in her work to help all New Yorkers.
“I’m Edie Windsor and I want to tell you about another battle that's very important to me, and that's getting Christine Quinn elected the next mayor of New York. She’s open and generous and she's smart. She understands the problems of managing a big city like New York. She comes of middle class background herself and has true compassion for the struggling middle class and the struggling working class and the struggling not-working class today. And you don't find that very often,” declared Windsor. “I hope everyone listening to me will not only vote for Chris themselves but in fact will spread the word, will educate everyone they care about. She'll be great!”
