Don’t just worry about billionaires' control over our democracy in New York. Fight back.Get Involved
The people of Long Island have an opportunity to make a difference and help bring fundamental change in our state government so that it listens to us and serves our interests. Join the League of Women Voters of Nassau County and the Long Island Progressive Coalition for a People’s Commission to End Public Corruption on Monday November 25th at 6:30pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church at Shelter Rock.
Gov. Cuomo created the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption with two assignments: shed light on the way big money distorts state government and make recommendations for reform.
We must make sure that the Commission recommends the only campaign finance reform that will really change the way Albany works. That is public matching for small dollar donations so candidates can raise enough money to campaign without relying on big money; a limit on the amount of contributions so candidates can’t depend on a few big donors; easy to find reporting on all contributions and spending; and a tough watchdog to enforce the rules.
The Moreland Commission held a few public hearings, but none on Long Island. So we are holding our own to let the Commission know what Long Islanders want. Testimony and the views of Long Island residents will be recorded and submitted to the Moreland Commission.
Please attend and speak up to End Public Corruption.
When: Monday, November 25th, 2013 at 6pm
Where: Unitarian Universalist Congregation at ShelterRock, 48 Shelter Rock Road, Manhasset, NY 11030
