Public Corruption

Restoring ethics in Albany

For decades, New York lawmakers have treated the privilege of public service as a license to enrich themselves and their cronies. The lack of ethics and the culture of corruption have become, along with the related maladies of insane taxes and unaccountable spending, the sad hallmark of our state government.

As your Assemblyman, I’ll honor my obligation to be honest about what I do and why I do it, and I’ll fight to restore ethics and integrity to Albany in these ways:

  • Deny pensions to lawmakers convicted of felonies
  • Forbid use of campaign funds on personal expenses
  • Revoke the exemption for legislators that allows pension double-dipping
  • Enact term limits
  • Require detailed disclosure of outside income and expenses
  • Reform redistricting to benefit citizens, not protect political parties

You pay enough for New York’s government without our legislators treating office as their personal piggy bank.
