Could public financing of elections work successfully in New York State?
Common Cause New York thinks so!
Join us on Thursday, March 19, for "Money in Politics: A Forum on Campaign Finance" to learn how public financing has worked in Connecticut, and to explore viable options for public funding here in New York.
Speakers will include Ed Gomes, the Assistant Majority Leader of the Connecticut State Senate who ran his re-election campaign using Connecticut's new Clean Election Program.
The program will also feature Karen Hobert-Flynn, Common Cause's Vice President for State Operations, who led the grassroots campaign that helped secure passage of Connecticut's Citizens' Election Program.
