MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. — Fair Elections for New York is in Middletown Monday calling on local leaders to pass a comprehensive reform bill.

Joined by members of the Middletown Chapter of Citizen Action New York, they’re turning to Senator John Bonacic to sign a petition in favor of public campaign financing.

They’re urging Bonacic to back ordinary voters and pass a bill by the end of the current legislative session.

The fair elections campaign is also calling on lawmakers to lower campaign contributions, increase government transparency, and prevent the pay-to-play tactic.

This latest push for campaign finance reform comes less than two weeks after advocates from across the state rallied in Albany.
