Here’s a view of the City Council, where Speaker Christine Quinn is discussing a package of legislation aimed at improving safety at night clubs.
Note the empty desk behind her. That’s where Yvette Clarke used to sit and, presumably, where Mathieu Eugene would have been sitting if he had been sworn in. He and Vinny Ignizio, who also won a Council Seat during the February 20 special election, have yet to take the oath of office.
For whatever reason, the results of their elections still haven’t been certified by the city’s Board of Elections.
