Do Nothing Speaker

New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn was the primary sponsor of just two out of 827 bills submitted to City Council since 2010

Advocates for good government describe Speaker Christine Quinn's legislative record as being a politically-motivated strategy that won't offend her wealthy interest campaign contributors.

One of the three lawmakers, who has introduced fewer bills than Speaker Quinn (if that is possible), is Larry Seabrook of the Bronx. Mr. Seabrook is under federal indictment for money laundering, extortion and fraud. Anonymous sources inside the City Council say that Speaker Quinn "frequently asks colleagues to introduce measures on her behalf, which allows her to curry favor and to avoid angering important voting blocs," reported The New York Daily News.

Based on her mixed motives and duplicitous political agenda, the future may inevitably describe Speaker Quinn as perhaps the worst City Council Speaker that New York City will ever have.
