Nicolas-Lewis endorses Quinn for NY mayor

NEW YORK–Fil-Am community leader Loida Nicolas Lewis has endorsed Christine Quinn for mayor of New York and urges Filipino Americans to join “Pinoys for Chris Quinn.”

Lewis was among the NYC leaders who rallied in front of the Eleanor Roosevelt Statue on the Upper West Side in support of Quinn for Mayor, stressing Quinn’s “lifelong record fighting for families and women.”

Lewis joined former Manhattan Borough President Ruth Messinger, former Congresswoman and NYC Comptroller Liz Holtzman and President of the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute Liz Abzug at the recent announcement and rollout of 1,000 women from all five boroughs who have pledged their support for Speaker Quinn’s bid to become New York City’s next Mayor.

Quinn’s “Walk It To Win It” canvassing was launched this past weekend with supporters walking door to door to talk to fellow New Yorkers about Quinn’s program for the middle class. Pinoys for Chris Quinn will do canvassing this coming weekend. Lewis is asking Fil-Ams to join Pinoys for Chris Quinn Phone Banks every Wednesdays 6-8 p.m.

To sign up for phone banks, canvassing and other volunteer opportunities in the Chris Quinn Campaign, contact 347-767-8896 or PinoysforQuinn@aol.com

    Today we learn that City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, a strong
    expected candidate for mayor in 2009, has her very own budget scandal!
    Turns out that Madam Speaker was earmarking Council monies to pretend
    nonprofits at the beginning of the year so she could keep the funds at
    hand to give to other groups later, according to the Post. The
    tabloid claims that she was using this slush fund “to thank or pay off
    politically important allies or cooperative council members.” Quinn says
    that allocating cash this way, which allows more flexibility throughout
    the year, has been a tradition among speakers since the eighties, but
    that she ordered it to stop last year. She says that when she heard her
    staff hadn’t obeyed that order, she reported the practice to
    authorities. We can’t tell yet how bad this will be for Quinn’s image or
    how it will affect her chances in next year’s mayoral race. It’s just
    been so long since a New York politician had a scandal that wasn’t
    tawdry and personal, we’ve lost all perspective.
