Quinn’s Remarks

During her State of the City Speech tomorrow, Christine Quinn will put some daylight between herself and Mayor Bloomberg, calling for a $300 tax credit for renters.

From the prepared remarks:

“After September 11th, we had to raise property taxes. But we made a promise — a promise to reduce those taxes when times were better. But homeowners aren’t the only ones who sacrificed for the good of our city. For most, New York City is a city of renters.”

It’ll also be worth keeping an eye out to see if Quinn, who formerly chaired the Council’s Health Committee, will say anything about the health care cuts proposed by Eliot Spitzer. Or whether she makes thematic reference to that 2009 thing.
