Sanders: Quinn Should Bring Paid Sick Leave to Vote
August 30th, 2012

New York City Councilman James Sanders Jr. is imploring Speaker Christine Quinn to bring a stalled paid sick leave bill to a vote.

“There is nothing harder to stop than an idea whose time has come,” the councilman said in a recent interview with the Gotham Gazette.

Quinn has refused to bring the bill to a vote, both in an earlier form in 2010 and after it was revised and reintroduced in recent months. In both instances, she has argued that the bill would negatively affect businesses in a weakened economy.

Sanders is running against Shirley Huntley in the Democrat primary for the 10th State Senate District.

    Councilman Sanders has been missing in action in his district for three terms and only comes out when he has an election in front of him. He is a slimy, corrupt pol that will hopefully find himself out of work soon. He has not served his constituents but has tried very hard to learn the game and fleece his flock.
