 Dear Governor Cuomo and State Legislators:We, the undersigned elected officials and candidates for office, urge you to passcomprehensive campaign finance reform with public funding of elections at its core.Everyday New Yorkers deserve to be heard in Albany. As candidates, we know that mostof New York’s elected officials go to Albany for the right reasons. But too often, the bigmoney interests drown out the voices of ordinary citizens. The current system is broken:the cost of running for office is skyrocketing; the explosion of outside groups spendingunlimited money to influence elections means that elected officials are forced to spendfar too much time raising money just to keep up; and the pay-to-play culture created byour campaign finance system gives undue influence over public policy to wealthycampaign donors. Now is the time to reform the way money flows in politics, andincrease the power of voters.We are also saddened and angry by what we have read so far about the recentarrests of lawmakers. These developments will deepen an already deep crisis of confidence in state government and will widen an already too wide gulf between the people and their government. These scandals require a systemic policy response that canrestore New Yorkers’ trust in their government. Only a full package of reforms, with public campaign financing at its core, will return New York to a system ‘of, by, and for the people.’ We urge you to pass a complete Fair Elections package by the end of Junethat includes public campaign financing; enhanced transparency and accountability; andlower limits on the size of all political donations.Sincerely,
Elected OfficalsJo-Ann Dyckman, Town Clerk, Town of Cortlandt, Westchester CountyRon Mangeri, Councilman, Town of Beekman, Dutchess CountySusanne Donnelly, Supervisor, Town of Ossining, Westchester CountyMary Breining, Receiver of Taxes, Town of Town of Cortlandt, Westchester CountyJeremy Wilber, Town Sup[ervisor, Town of Woodstock, Ulster CountyLeslie Gross, Town Clerk, Town of North Hempstead, Nassau CountyKate Ramkissoon, Alderman, City of City of Middletown, Orange CountyThird WardCarl Zatz, Town Supervisor, Town of Gardiner, Ulster CountyRobert Daraio, Trustee, Village of Ossining, Westchester CountyKenan Baldridge, Town Supervisor, Town of Rose, Wayne CountyLawrence Kadish, Supervisor, Town of Taghkanic, Columbia CountyJohn Clarkson, Town Supervisor, Town of Bethlehem, Albany CountyPAUL FEINER, supervisor, Town of greenburgh, westchester CountyStanley Kaznowski,III.
