Quinn said she is running for office to meet residents' needs, including taxes, parking and improving quality of life. She said she wants to control overdevelopment, cost of living, limit crime and address street beautification, such as trash pickup and street sweeping. One of Quinn's main concerns is addressing parking issues for Long Beach residents on weekends and during the summer. She added that taxes are pricing residents out of their homes. "It's getting harder and harder for the people I grew up with and those my parents age to stay here," Quinn said.
Quinn, 41, is running on the Republican, Conservative, Independence and Reform lines. She grew up in Long Beach and has lived in the city most recently since 2010. She earned her bachelor's degree from Fordham University and she has a law degree from St. John's University. Quinn works in the career services office at Fordham University's School of Law. She previously worked for New York City District 4 Councilman Andrew Eristoff and 73rd District Assemb. John Ravitz, both Republicans.
