The Upper East Side Congresswoman touts Speaker Quinn’s record on job creation, education and her results-oriented work ethic

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney enthusiastically endorsed New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn for mayor of New York on Monday, citing her strong record of accomplishment fighting for New York’s middle class and vision for leading New York. After offering her endorsement of Quinn, Maloney joined Quinn on her Walk and Talk tour through Stuy Town in the lower East Side of Manhattan, part of Maloney’s district.

“Christine has passed 7 balanced, on-time budgets — and fought to keep firehouses open, keep libraries open, preserve child care for working parents, and save the jobs of 4,100 school teachers,” said Maloney. “Christine shares so many of my Democratic values and priorities. But most importantly, she’s proven again and again that she’s tough enough to run this city and make the hard choices a mayor faces every day. Like me, she doesn’t just talk about getting things done, she actually does it. On issue after issue that’s important to middle class New Yorkers, she’s gotten results. I am incredibly proud to endorse Christine Quinn to be New York’s next mayor.”

“As the leading advocate in the House for passage of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health Bill, her endorsement is particularly important to me as I have year after year fought to protect the vital resources we provide our first responders and blocked the closure of fire houses throughout the City,” said Speaker Quinn. “Carolyn’s support is so important, because at a time when too many public officials simply point fingers and want to argue, she is someone who is willing to work toward getting actual results. I am proud to have such a trailblazer supporting my candidacy.”

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney was first elected to Congress in 1992 and represents the East Side of Manhattan, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Long Island City, and Astoria. Prior to that, Maloney served for ten years on the New York City Council.
