“Speaker Christine Quinn is uniquely qualified to be an effective Mayor,” said State Assembly Member Dan Quart. “Christine Quinn not only has a strong, forward-looking agenda for New York, but she has the record to back it up. As Speaker, Christine knows how to bring all sides together to make the tough choices necessary to move this city forward. I am proud to wholeheartedly support the next Mayor of New York City.”

“Being a District Leader is about connecting with your neighbors and building community from the inside out. Speaker Chris Quinn is a true local leader, committed to connecting neighborhoods across all five boroughs,” said District Leader Sally Minard. “We need a Mayor who understands the dynamic of local politics and Speaker Quinn is this leader.”

“Speaker Quinn has an impressive background bringing real results to New York City and will be an amazing ally for residents in all corners of each borough,” said District Leader Linda Foa.  “No issue is too small for Speaker Quinn—I know she’ll continue the same commitment we’ve seen firsthand and fight to bring quality education, improved infrastructure and safer streets to our community.”

“There is no greater advocate for his community than Dan Quart,” said Speaker Christine Quinn. “Assembly Member Quart has been a strong partner advocating for better education opportunities for all New York City children and he, like me, is committed to enhancing New York’s citywide transportation infrastructure. I look forward to partnering with him and District Leaders Linda Foa and Sally Minard to find innovative solutions to the issues facing the Upper East Side and in bringing good jobs, investments in education, transportation improvements across the neighborhood.”
