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.

Fair Elections for Suffolk County

We are working to expand public financing into more cities and counties across the state.

Lobbyist Disclosure

When well-connected lobbyists wield too much power and influence, everyday New Yorkers can be shut out of the process.
