Leave it to the always-sensible and intelligent state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) to dismiss the most recent Quinnipiac University poll showing support for keeping the carriage horses on Manhattan’s dangerous streets (“Poll shows New Yorkers support horse carriages,” March 21-27).
Let us recall that for more than a year, until a week to 10 days before the mayoral primary, the same Quinnipiac polling had a certain former City Council speaker as a “sure thing.”
I am active in the campaign to ban horse-drawn carriages and was dedicated to the defeat of the Christine Quinn campaign. My polling takes place on the streets, and the great majority of people I speak with want the carriage horses to join Quinn in early retirement.
