Letter to Bill de Blasio and Joe Lhota Urging them to take a People's Pledge

September 25, 2013



This letter out of Common Cause New York reads, in part, 'The People?s Pledge is straightforward. Both candidates agree that in the event any third party organization or individual airs any independent expenditure broadcast (including radio), cable, satellite, online advertising and/or direct mail in support or opposition to either candidate, the candidate the expenditure benefits (i.e., the candidate supported or the candidate not opposed) agrees to pay 50% of the cost of the advertising buy to the charity of the opposing candidate?s choice within an agreed timeframe.'
