Christine Quinn When Not Trying to Block Homeless People She Works on Horse Advocates
click above link to

I spoke to Andres Perez from Picture the Homeless just now and he told me that Intro 48 is being blocked by Christine Quinn!

What is Intro 48?  Intro 48 is a city council bill that would empower NYC to conduct an annual count of vacant  buildings and lots.

Why would Christine Quinn block this bill that has been mysteriously stuck in front of Housing and Building committee of City Council since February 2010.   There are believed to be 11,500 empty lots here in NYC.
was scheduled for Tuesday - Sept. 20th - 12 noon
We only learned after 5pm today that the Speaker's Office (Christine Quinn) asked that our press conference be shut down tomorrow. This conference would have been to introduce Intro 670, which deals with the "humane disposition" of carriage horses and will prevent them from going to auction. The reasons for the shut down are vague but bogus as far as I am concerned.Thanks to all of you who were planning to come out.
