New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke on a telephone town hall last night with about 1,350 grassroots activists, signaling his strong support for campaign finance reform, saying "Campaign finance is a way to tell the people of this state and this country: It's your government. You own it. Literally." The Governor called campaign finance reform “one of the most important issues to complete” in the rest of New York’s legislative session this year.
The call, organized by the Fair Elections for New York coalition also included segments by national leaders from CWA, Sierra Club, and the NAACP about the importance of the New York fight and their organizations’ engagement in it. Coverage from New York Daily News, Capital Tonight, and a Storify recapping the call’s many live bloggers.
