Activists head to Albany to push for campaign finance reform

News

A group of activists from western New York are headed to Albany to push for campaign finance reform.

They left Buffalo on Wednesday morning and headed to Rochester to pick up more activists.

“Fair Elections for New York” says New York State has some of the worst campaign finance laws in the country. They say the state has the highest contribution limits.

The group says they believe a small donor matching system for candidates in state elections would help make everyday New Yorkers’ voices heard.

“Right now in fair elections, the LLC is robbing the people of opportunity to participate in the electoral process in a decent and fair way,” Jim Anderson says.

The group will meet with activists from all over the state, including Binghamton, Syracuse and New York City in Albany.
