In his State of the State Address, Governor Cuomo outlined a series of steps that will bring fairness and greater disclosure to the New York’s campaign finance laws.
New York Leadership for Accountable Government (NY LEAD) is a bipartisan group of New York business, civic, and philanthropic leaders who have come together to advocate for comprehensive reform to the way elections are funded in the Empire State. We want to join our collective voices to restore fairness and integrity to New York’s political process.
New York State’s current “pay to play” culture has reinforced the perception that our government is beholden to entrenched special interests and not the people. Comprehensive reforms, which include a small donor matching system, will put the needs of real voters — the business owners and workers who drive New York’s economy — back on the agenda.
