The March 31st budget deal between the governor and the State legislature included money for a small donor matching system that the Fair Elections for NY campaign had been pushing for, but left the details of how it would be spent up to a commission. Nearly three months later, that commission still has not been seated.
Tomorrow the campaign will be doing a call relay to legislators demanding that the commission be seated as soon as possible. If you are interested in signing up for a shift you can do so here. It is urgent that this commission be able to hear from the public and conduct their work in a transparent and open manner, and time is running out. I will be making calls tomorrow and I urge you to do the same.
