Quinn on Cathie Black and Council Resolution
November 17th, 2010

New Yorkers shouldn’t be surprised of the mayor’s decision to select Cathie Black as schools chancellor — at least that is what Council Speaker Christine Quinn says.

“This is an example of how mayoral control works,” said Quinn this afternoon before the council’s stated meeting. It’s the mayor’s choice, she argued.

Her comments come after the speaker released a statement last week following Black’s selection, saying she “looked forward” to working with her.

They also come as opposition against Black’s appointment continues to mount. That opposition includes several members of the City Council, who are set to introduce a resolution (seen below) today that asks the state to deny Black the necessary waiver for her to serve as chancellor. The resolution states: “The people of New York City want a chancellor with experience, character and qualifications that are well suited for the education of children and not merely the management of a corporation.”

Quinn declined to take a position on the resolution this afternoon.
