Public campaign financing, in the hands of 9 people (Op-Ed)

The recently appointed members of the state’s Public Campaign Financing Commission are getting organized to tackle the task ahead of them: designing a small donor public financing system for New York state by December 1, 2019.  The Commissioners are already making progress. According to Commissioner Jay Jacobs, four public hearings will likely be scheduled beginning in mid- to late September.  Jacobs noted that New York City’s long-running public financing system, which provides a multiple match on small donations, serves as a model for the Commission’s work.
