Strengthen NYC's citizen funded elections!

Count me in! I want to let the NYC Council Committee on Governmental Operations know that I strongly support Int. 1130A, which would increase the campaign finance system’s public matching grant from a partial to a full match.

New York City’s campaign finance system matches the first $175 of contributions from residents by 6 to 1 and gives participating candidates a partial public matching grant of up to 55% of the spending limit in competitive races. This leaves more than 1/3 of the funds outstanding between the public matching grant and the spending limit, which must be reached to be competitive.

Int. 1130-A will:
✓ Reduce Big Money by filling the “big dollar gap” with small dollars matched with a full public matching grant
✓ Increase the Number of Small Donors by a minimum of 50% for candidates seeking a full public matching grant.
