Mayor Commends Quinn on Term Limit Decision

Monday, October 13, 2008

Mayor Bloomberg today praised the City Council speaker for supporting his bid to change the term limits law and run for a third term. After keeping her cards close to the vest for weeks, Christine Quinn announced yesterday her endorsement of the mayor's proposal. She said it would offer the city a "continuity of leadership" during the current economic crisis. Bloomberg credited Quinn for reversing an earlier position.

BLOOMBERG: She’s changed her mind and there's nothing wrong with changing your mind when the facts change. As a matter of fact, people who don't change their minds when the facts change are dogmatic, rather than being pragmatic.

REPORTER: The mayor, speaking to reporters at the Columbus Day parade, insists he did not offer Quinn a position in his administration in exchange for her support. Public hearings on the legislation, and two opposing bills, will be held this Thursday and Friday.
