TO: ALL NEW YORK STATE SENATOR AND
ASSEMBLY MEMBER CANDIDATES
We urge you to #FixNYDemocracy and to vote to pass comprehensive democracy reform in the 2021 legislative session. Taking this pledge means that I support:
Fixing Our Broken Elections
Establishing a truly independent redistricting committee to ensure fair boundaries are drawn.
Repealing recent changes to ballot access, which are among the most restrictive laws in the nation.
Expanding Ranked Choice Voting to all of New York to ensure all winners have majority support and end the “spoiler effect.”
Getting Big Money Out of NY Politics
Reducing the power of the biggest campaign donors by drastically lowering NY’s campaign contribution limits – which are among the nation’s highest – and closing donation loopholes for party committees.
Holding Politicians Accountable on Corruption
Replacing the Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE) with a new, truly independent body that has the power to hold public servants for corruption.
I stand with my fellow voters who demand action on political corruption now. Our state is facing a crisis of historic proportions, and we need solutions that work for all our people, not just for the powerful and connected.
