We are MAYDAY.
We are going to get big money out of politics, something that nearly all Americans agree on, regardless of their political leanings.
We help elect great candidates who will pass campaign finance legislation. In New York City, we already have an outstanding finance system that lets smaller candidates raise money through public matching.
But state elections are still awash in corporate funds. We need progressive candidates in state assembly to turn that tide.
Paul Newell has been fighting for fair government policies for his whole career. He's from downtown New York City, and in 2008 he was the first candidate to run against Sheldon Silver for State Assembly. Newell lost that race, but Silver has since been convincted on seven counts of corruption, and had to give up his seat.
Newell is running against five other candidates but is considered a leader because of his great grassroots network. He has a ton of young supporters on his team... if you're a fan of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren or Zephyr Teachout, you'll love his policies.
We are going to MEET WITH PAUL!
Please join us on Thursday evening to discuss his campaign leading up to his primary on September 13th.
We at MAYDAY are going to lend him our support in turning out voters, and to elect Paul to New York State Assembly!
