We are past the time for incremental change. New Yorkers need wholesale, transformative change, done within a transparent process to restore faith in our government.
There are now 32 state legislators who have been indicted or have left office due to criminal or ethical issues since 2000. Incremental change in the budget, negotiated in secrecy, is no substitute for real comprehensive ethics and campaign finance reform.
New Yorkers deserve better than we’re getting from Albany on ethics reform. Fighting corruption means getting big money out of politics to empower voters and strengthen our democracy.
Call on our leaders to remember who they’re working for --you!-- and confirm their leadership by tackling this crisis with real reform now.
