Smile, You've Signed the Pledge

Nick, our executive director, has been traveling around New York asking candidates
to publicly sign the Voters First Pledge. And we've got pictures!
At events sponsored by Citizen Action of New York's federal political action committee, Kirsten Gillibrand, candidate in New York's 20th congressional district, and Dan Maffei, candidate in New York's
25th congressional district both reaffirmed their support of the pledge by
signing it publicly. See the photos below from the events in Albany and Syracuse.

the need for a new system.
