Turns Out, Quinn Now Comfortable With the Will of the People

via the New York Post

Council Speaker Christine Quinn yesterday backed out of her longstanding promise to work on overturning term limits for herself and her legislative colleagues.

---

"I am today making a firm and final decision. I will not support the repeal or change of term limits through any mechanism, and I will oppose aggressively any attempts by anyone to make any changes in the term-limit law," announced Quinn (D-Manhattan).

"I don't agree with term limits," she said. "But they are the will of the voters."

    Statement by Speaker Christine C. Quinn
    Re: Term Limits

    After careful consideration and discussions with my colleagues in the Council, I have decided not to pursue a change in New York City's term limit law. I will neither support legislation nor will I seek or support a new referendum eliminating or altering term limits.

    Over the last two years, the City Council has pursued an agenda of reform and democratization. We have strengthened our lobbying and campaign finance laws, increased transparency in the budget process and improved our constituent services by implementing CouncilStat. I believe that overruling the will of New Yorkers - who have voted twice in favor of term limits - would be anti-democratic and anti-reform.
