Jerrold Nadler: Seize this campaign reform opportunity, New York

Earlier this summer, Gov. Cuomo, Speaker Carl Heastie and Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins completed an impressive legislative session. The state passed key progressive priorities into law, including decriminalizing marijuana, setting aggressive carbon emissions reduction targets, establishing key protections for immigrants and solidifying the right to abortion. Among those exciting accomplishments was the Legislature taking strong steps to finally address the role of big money in New York politics.

Under the governor’s leadership, the state is in the unique position to show the rest of the country how to build and protect democracy by enacting campaign finance reform with small-donor matching funds.

Go for it.

Anti-IDC state senators come out swinging for ranked choice voting

They pushed out some of the most entrenched pols in the city, and now they’re pushing for New Yorkers to reform the way they vote.

Five state senators who last year toppled the Independent Democratic Conference are urging New Yorkers to approve a referendum that would bring “ranked-choice voting” to NYC.
