Background:
7
This week the Governor, Senate Majority Leader ASC, and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie are entering budget negotiations.
.
8
If a strong public financing package isn't included in the budget, it will be EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to pass afterwards - this is our best shot!!!
9
We are hearing that our democratic leaders are reaching a deal to include a non-binding commission to "study" the issue - THIS IS NOT ENOUGH.
10
WEDNESDAY: CALL (518) 455-2585 - SAMPLE SCRIPT
11
Hi my name is _________, I'm an activist who worked hard to deliver a Democratic majority in the state senate.
Hi my name is _________, I'm an activist who worked hard to deliver a Democratic majority in the state senate.
12
Hi my name is _________, I'm an activist who worked hard to deliver a Democratic majority in the state senate.
I'm calling to let Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins know that we are watching what happens in the budget negotiations very closely.
13
Hi my name is _________, I'm an activist who worked hard to deliver a Democratic majority in the state senate.
Any agreement that fails to create *BINDING* language to create a small-dollar matching system for NYS elections is not acceptable.
14
All three of the leaders negotiating have previously professed support for public financing - and now they have the majority to deliver it.
15
Can we count on Leader Stewart Cousins to stay strong on actually creating a public financing progam (and on rejecting any non-binding commitments)?
