Putting Everyday People Before Big Money
When lawmakers spend too much time fundraising and courting big donors, they lose touch with the everyday people they are supposed to represent. Common Cause New York works to ensure elected officials are responsive to the priorities of all their constituents, not just the wealthy and well-connected, through the adoption of effective campaign finance and public financing of elections laws.
