Quinn’s Residency Test

Here are the forms Christine Quinn is requiring all City Council members to fill out, proving they are eligible to hold public office.

Quinn wants all members to prove, among other things, that they’re United States Citizens, and legal residents of the districts they represent.

For the residency requirement, members need to bring in five pieces of evidence.

When such measures were first attempted, Mathieu Eugene refused to sign, and was (eventually) sworn in.

Quinn is in Albany today (presumably lobbying for the same-sex marriage bill). Her office said she has no public schedule today.
