Spitzer Joins Brennan Center in Convening of Civic Leaders on Campaign Finance Reform

This afternoon, Governor Eliot Spitzer joined the Brennan Center for Justice in convening a meeting of civic, business and educational leaders to discuss the need for campaign finance reform in New York State.

Among the Governor's comments:
Rooting out the pervasive influence of special interests from state government will not be accomplished through the actions of elected officials alone, but will require the support of civic-minded individuals and organizations...Today, the Brennan Center for Justice and other like-minded individuals have reaffirmed their unwavering commitment to ending the stranglehold special interests have on Albany and allowing our elected officials to be held accountable to the public.
Photos to come!
