Quinn Re-Elected Speaker
January 6th, 2010

As expected, Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who took the reins of the City Council in 2006, was re-elected to a four-year term as speaker this afternoon by a vote of 48 to 1.

The only dissenter was Councilmember Charles Barron, who was also running for the position.

Also today, 13 new council members took their chairs on the chamber floor, representing a more diverse (and some say more progressive) body.

Stay tuned for more coverage of 2010 day 1 at the council.
