Marlon, Brooklyn NY

I want Chris to be elected because…

I like her attitude and mentality of a strong and tough New Yorker. She works hard and fights for what she believes this city needs in order to progress as a whole. Her effect on the middle class and keeping our public jobs available such as the firehouses libraries and preventing layoffs of thousands of teachers played a huge role in my interest in her becoming my next Mayor

I got involved in the Quinn campaign because…

The campaign has taught me the primary thing that I wanted to learn from it, and that is how hard politicians work to get results. The work ethic of a politician should never be taken for granted especially those of the Quinn campaign.

The first thing I did for the Quinn campaign was…

Learn how to phone bank and creatively come up with my own methods of persuasion. Learning how to pitch information to someone is a great asset to have, not only in politics, but also in the working world as a whole.

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

The effect that has canvasing on our voters. When someone is directly in contact with a representative of the campaign this gives him or her a connection of how direct the candidate will be with its people. I like to look at it as an opportunity to give the people a visual of how important it is that we choose the best candidate for the job.

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

Giving my best effort to complete any and all task. Task that will help to build her chances on becoming the Mayor of this wonderful city of New York that I’ve loved and lived in my entire life. Last but not least on primary day, VOTE!

Miriam, Queens NY

I want Chris to be elected because…

Having a woman mayor would be historical.

Also because she is the most qualified and in my opinion is the only one with enough chutzpah to be the mayor of NYC. 

I got involved in the Quinn campaign because…

I wanted to experience the machine that is a political campaign first hand. Politicians make such important decisions and I thought learning how they got into their current position would be fun (in a nerdy kind of way). 

The first thing I did for the Quinn campaign was…

Canvassing in Brooklyn. 

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

Meeting so many people is, by far, the most entertaining thing ever. I have some pretty awesome stories. 

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

By knocking on as many doors as possible to turn undecided voters into a strong supporters
