Voting Rights, Campaign Finance Reform, and Bringing Real Democracy to Albany

We’ve long heard New York State politicians promise to clean up Albany, only to see the same corrupt system persist. While we have made considerable progress in the last two years, New York still has restrictive voting laws that disenfranchise many New Yorkers, as well as some of the weakest campaign finance laws in the country. New Yorkers don’t think their voices will be heard in Albany.

In my second term, I’ll continue to fight for will fight for:

  • Real campaign finance reform, including an end to the LLC loophole, limits to outside income, and full public financing of state elections
  • Greater transparency for donors to politicians and PACs, so New Yorkers know who’s behind their politicians
  • Dramatically expanded voting rights including same-day registration, automatic voter registration, open primaries, greater language support, and an end to felony disenfranchisement.
