"If you look at my record and what I've done on issues that matter to all New Yorkers, and issues that matter particular to women, I don’t think anyone else in the race has the same kind of record that I do," Quinn, who is running for the Democratic nomination, said.

With less than 100 days to the primary election, mayoral candidates have been announcing endorsements almost daily. The endorsement from NOW-NYC is important for Quinn, since she has been criticized in the past for holding up the passage of a paid sick leave law that was supported by prominent women activists.

Thompson, A Backer Of NYPD IG Proposal, Gets Detectives' Union Support http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/elections/2013/06/06/thompson-a-backer-of-nypd-ig-proposal-gets-detectives-union-support http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/elections/2013/06/06/thompson-a-backer-of-nypd-ig-proposal-gets-detectives-union-support A union representing police detectives opposes legislation that would create an independent monitor to oversee the New York Police Department.

But their opposition to the proposal hasn’t stopped the union from endorsing Democrat Bill Thompson for mayor — who has said he supports the idea.

Michael Palladino, chief of the Detectives' Endowment Association, was asked by a reporter yesterday at a rally for Thompson whether the candidate’s support of the inspector general legislation weighed into the union’s decision to endorse him. “Obviously it didn’t,” Palladino replied.

Palladino is also the chairman of the Uniformed Workers of New York, which held the campaign rally to show their support for Thompson.

Thompson reiterated his support of the proposal for an independent police inspector general, as well as a modified form of stop-and-frisk.

"Stop-and-frisk — and I've said this before and I'll say it again — is a useful policing tool that's been misused and abused,” Thompson said as heads bobbed in agreement behind him.

“When you get away from the constitutional way it was determined that it should be used, then its wrong and it’s a mistake. I think if you ask a number of those in law enforcement here individuals you’ll hear that also.”

The coalition technically announced its support for the candidate last week, but came out yesterday to publicly vouch for Thompson’s positions on public safety.

In a prepared statement, Palladino praised Thompson, who has promised to add 2,000 officers to the police force.

"Bill Thompson is ready to lead our city and protect New Yorkers from day one,” he said in the statement.

The UUWNY represents more than 125,000 city and state workers across 20 unions from the city’s police, fire, sanitation, corrections and court service work forces.

The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, one of the city’s most influential police unions, has yet to endorse a candidate in the race.
