THE NEW NY AGENDA 
T
he people o New York deserve agovernment that works, or a change— not a government paralyzed bypartisan politics and plagued by ethicalscandals.We love New York and are willing to fghtor the undamental reorms necessaryto restore competence and integrityin government and regain the public’sconfdence.We are Democrats, Republicans andIndependents. But we are New Yorkersfrst, oremost and always.Today, I join with my ellow New Yorkers toactively support Andrew Cuomo’s New NYAgenda. I pledge to vote in the upcomingelections, to urge my local elected ofcialsto support this Agenda, and to organize andmobilize my community in November—andnext year—to make a “New NY” a reality.
1.
Clean Up Albany.
We must restore honor and integrity to government, with tough newethics standards, expanded disclosure requirements, independent investigators to rootout and punish corruption, and an overhaul o campaign fnance laws. We must removelegislative redistricting rom partisan elected politicians and place it in the hands o anindependent commission that works only or the people. And we must hold a constitutionalconvention – A People’s Convention – to rewrite the Constitution and make these changesimmediately because we cannot wait any longer or the state legislature to act.
2.
Get Our Fiscal House in Order.
 We must get our State’s fscal house in order by immediatelyimposing a cap on state spending and reezing salaries o state public employees aspart o a one-year emergency fnancial plan, committing to no increase in personal orcorporate income taxes or sales taxes and imposing a local property tax cap. We mustalso eliminate mandates that make it impossible or school districts and localities tocontain costs.
3.
Rightsizing Government.
 Government in New York is too big, ineective and expensive.We must enlist the best private sector minds to help overhaul our more than 1,000state agencies, authorities and commissions and reduce their number by 20 percent.We must make it easier to consolidate or share services among our more than 10,000local governments.
4.
NY Works.
 We must make New York the jobs capital o the nation and get unemployedNew Yorkers back to work. We will give businesses a tax credit o up to $3,000 oreach unemployed New Yorker hired or a new job. We must also replace New York’sineective economic development eorts with a new strategy organized around regionalindustry clusters; reduce the high costs o doing business in the state; and support smallbusinesses by increasing access to capital and streamlining regulatory barriers.
5.
NY Leads.
New York has been a national leader in protecting and advancing individualrights and saeguarding the uture o its citizens. To remain so, we must protect awoman’s right to choose, achieve marriage equality, enact tough anti-discrimination laws,truly regulate Wall Street, attract the best and the brightest to government, leave ourchildren a cleaner and greener world, and continue to oppose the death penalty.

Remember this? THE NEW NY AGENDA: A PLAN FOR ACTION The impact of the aging Baby Boom generation on State government is profound. Over 37,000 employees have retired in the past six years. Tens of thousands are likely to retire soon, given that 42 percent of the State workforce is eligible to retire in the next five years. How does this factor into state worker negotiations?
