NEW YORK CITY: Christine Quinn Signs Off As Speaker Of The City Council
"We helped thousands more families find affordable homes, and thousands more students get full day pre-kindergarten. We created good middle class jobs, passed some of the strongest environmental protections in the nation, and helped New Yorkers lead longer and healthier lives. Though we are ending this chapter of our work together, the story of New York City is still being written every day in every corner of the five boroughs. I look forward to continuing to fight by your side in the months and years ahead, to give every New Yorker even greater opportunity, to find innovative solutions to our biggest challenges, and to ensure that our best days are always ahead of us." - Christine Quinn, in a press release issued on her last day as speaker and member of the New York City Council.
