17 Sep Fair Elections Hearing (Albany, NY)
From 9:30 AM until 1:00 PM
At Rockefeller Institute of Government
411 State Street, Albany, NY 12203
Fair Elections for New York / Citizen Action of New York - Capital District Chapter
New York's Public Campaign Financing Commission is holding hearings around the state to gather public input.
The Commission, set up by the Governor and Legislature, has until December 1 to create the rules for a new program aimed at making our democracy work for ALL New Yorkers. A small donor matching program, like the one in New York City, would give candidates in New York State the opportunity to run for office backed by grassroots donors in their community, instead of big money.
Fair Elections for New York will hold a press conference outside of the Albany hearing at 9:30am and the hearing will begin at 10am at the Rockefeller Institute of Government, 411 State Street, Albany, NY 12203.
