Mayor Bloomberg: Arm-twisting? Who Me?; Term Limits Public Hearings Begin Thursday at City Hall

Interesting that stories elaborating on Mayor Bloomberg and Christine Quinn’s “arm twisting” tactics appear in both The New York Daily News and The New York Post today. The story was first broken by the New York Times Monday but it was somewhat obscured within the story of Christine Quinn rallying expectedly to our CEO Mayor’s side.

Read Mayor Bloomberg’s denial in “Testy Bloomberg denies twisting arms on term limits” in the Daily News and the Post’s piece “Quinn targeting term foe’s plum.”

Don’t forget the public hearings begin tomorrow, Thursday!  They are prepared to go all night.  You can also submit written testimony.  Details follow:

The first hearing will be held on Thursday, October 16th at 1:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall (2nd Floor).

The second hearing will be held on Friday, October 17th at 10:00 a.m. in the Committee Room at City Hall (2nd Floor).

Individuals who wish to give testimony may do so by registering at either hearing.
