Council Members Express Support for Cuomo's Dormant Campaign-Finance Plan
Councilman Dan Garodnick, who is considering a run for city comptroller next year, sent a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo today expressing support for his plan to publicly finance campaigns in the state.
In the letter, which is signed by 27 City Council members, Garodnick writes:
"After the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, we face an era of unlimited and increasingly secret spending in our elections. Public financing programs are one way to help combat this potentially corrupting influence of big money in our politics."
