Step Away from the Term Limits!
Such were the warnings given to newly minted Council Speaker Christine Quinn by the edit heads at the Daily News and NY Post, as well as by Daily News columnist Michael Goodwin.
Here's a snippet from Goodwin's piece:
By going the legislative route, instead of putting the measure before voters, Quinn will prove herself an inferior public servant to her two predecessors. Both Peter Vallone and .Gifford Miller opposed term limits, but felt obligated to listen to the public, and so rejected self-dealing legislation. Quinn thus begins by sticking her finger in the public's eye. Nice.
