Speaker Christine Quinn made it official and is running for mayor of one of our country's greatest cities. If elected she would be the first openly gay woman to hold this office.
Now, as for myself, I have disagreed with some of her actions in the City Council, but I did like when she said she was about keeping New York City a place for the middle class to live and grow and a place that's going to help hard-working people get into the middle class.
Well, if she does become mayor I hope she makes that happen. For that, I wish her lots of luck.
