Don’t just worry about the impact of huge campaign contributions on elections in New York. Fight back.Get Involved
Today, a large group of diverse organizations that support Fair Elections for New York sent a letter to Governor Cuomo detailing the need for publicly financed campaigns, lower contribution limits, and better enforcement, and thanking the Governor for his strong support.
The letter, signed by 118 civil rights, business, faith, grassroots community, good government, environmental, and labor organizations, is an indication of the broad support for this critical reform that will stand up against the massive influence of money in our political system.
After Governor Cuomo’s recent State of the State address, a Siena poll showed that 74% of New Yorkers support Fair Elections as a way to foster small donor participation in campaigns.
In the letter, the groups expressed their enthusiasm to work with Governor Cuomo and members of the Legislature to pass publicly financed elections and other campaign finance reforms during this legislative session.
