Governor Cuomo has put Fair Elections in the Executive Budget, and now it’s time to make sure it stays there. A coalition group has organized for New Yorkers to engage in lobby visits in Albany with our Senators and Assembly members to encourage them to pass a small donor matching fund in the state budget, and to champion campaign finance reform so our elected officials will be accountable to the voters instead of wealthy campaign donors.
Free buses are available from many places in New York State, including several locations in New York City. You must be registered for a seat on the bus by clicking Register for A Seat on the Bus. Lunch will be provided in Albany. Please feel free to bring snacks and water for the bus trip.
We will gather at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 275 State Street, Albany at 11:00 am and wrap up the day at 4:00 pm.
