Quinn Staffer Running for Council

Here’s the invitation to the kick-off fund-raiser for City Council candidate John Lisyanskiy, who is among the candidates running to replace term-limited Brooklyn Councilman Domenic Recchia.

Lisyanskiy currently works in the City Council as an executive assistant to Christine Quinn. While experience in the Council and first-hand knowledge of how City Hall works is usually an unalloyed benefit on the local campaign trail, Quinn’s recent issues may, in the short term, make it more of a mixed bag.
