The recent corruption cases against former Sheldon Silver and Dean Skelos
are shocking examples of how current rules for New York politics enable our
elected leaders to abuse their power for personal gain.
Currently, ethics reforms have to go through Senate Majority Leader John
Flanagan’s desk. As his constituent, join us in demanding Senator
Flanagan stops preventing ethics reform.
These scandals should be a wake-up call to all elected officials that New
Yorkers deserve better.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Common Cause.
