Mary, Bronx NY

I want Chris to be elected because…

New York City is ready for a new progressive female mayor who can make changes, has a real proven record, and will continue to take the city in the right direction.

I got involved in the Quinn campaign because….

I am passionate about politics and thought this would be a great opportunity to be able to experience what goes on in a campaign, especially one so close to home and my heart, and to work for a candidate I admire.

The first thing I did for the Quinn campaign was… 

Participate in an endorsement at City Hall.

The thing I like best about working for the Quinn campaign is…

That I actually get to be in the same space as Quinn more than once and the fact that she has an awesome and talented staff! It is a great feeling to actually meet and connect with the candidate who you are working for, and to leave work at the end of the day knowing you have helped the campaign in some way or other.

 I am going to help Chris win between now and Primary Day by…

 Talking to everyone about why Quinn is my choice for mayor whether that be through word of mouth, social media, etc. and helping the campaign in every way I can.

Gabrielle, New York NY

I want Chris to be elected because…

I think Chris' ideas as the potential first female mayor to continue to keep New York City affordable for the middle class, save the jobs of public school teachers and keep the streets safe are all important and necessary for the city.

2LUKEWESTCHEST.jpg

Luke, Westchester NY

I want Chris to be elected because…

I want Chris to be elected because out of all of the candidates in the primary she is by far the most capable contender. Not only has she prevented the layoff of over four thousand teachers but she has also balanced the budget at the same time. In comparison to all the other candidates she is the most uniquely qualified.  Compare that to Anthony Weiner who only passed one bill during his 12 years in Congress. For those reasons among others that is why Chris should be elected.

I got involved in the Quinn campaign because…

  I got involved because I wanted to simultaneously learn the ins and outs of campaigns as well as learning how to fight for progressive ideas that all New Yorkers hold dear.

 The first thing I did for the Quinn campaign was…

 The first thing I did was canvass in the upper west side.

The thing I like best about working for the Quinn campaign is…

Working with my colleagues is definitely the biggest reason why I enjoy working on the Quinn Campaign.

I am going to help Chris win between now and Primary Day by…

Working my hardest. I intend to stay on the campaign until the end, and I will contribute by canvassing and phone banking.

Diana, Queens NY

I want Chris to be elected because…

She has shown that she is most effective and progressive candidate. If elected, she would become the first female mayor of New York! Chris has reformed education for younger students and has dedicated herself to making New York accessible to all middle class families.

 I got involved in the Quinn campaign because...

Interning for Speaker Quinn would provide me with a great vantage point to see how campaigns are run and how policy is written. I wanted to become part of a movement that stands for the empowerment of women, particularly one that encourages women to be fearless and passionately dedicate themselves to causes they believe in.

The first thing I did for the Quinn campaign was…

Canvass and speak to voters residing in Corona, Queens.

The thing I like best about working for the Quinn campaign is… 

Learning about the foundation of building a campaign such as Quinn’s. In history, I’ve learned that movements, whether they be radical or mainstream, start with a strong base. I was not aware of how such movements begin and grow until I joined the Quinn Campaign.

I am going to help Chris win between now and Primary Day by…

Explaining to any voter why she should give Quinn her support and by recruiting as many volunteers as possible.

She is, without a doubt, the most qualified and experienced candidate for this city. As mayor, Christine would lead New York forward in a time that promises to be of great historical and political significance. 

I got involved in the Quinn campaign because...

I wanted to learn about politics from a first-hand experience at the grassroots level. The mayoral race is one of the most closely followed elections in the country, and I wanted to be a part of that in any way I could. I’ve lived in this city my entire life, and I want the chance to make an impact right here at home.

The first thing I did for the Quinn campaign was…

Complete a canvassing shift over the weekend up in the Bronx by Pelham Gardens.

The thing I like best about working for the Quinn campaign is…

The level of intensity and commitment that everyone brings to work each day. It’s such a fun work environment; nevertheless, we are all focused on one task: getting Chris elected as the first female mayor of NYC.

Going door-to-door and telling all the undecided voters of the city how Christine would make this city even better.
