At a press conference today in Albany, another non-partisan group working for more open and accountable government was launched. "Reinvent Albany" is looking to shake things up in our state capitol. They've already announced their first event, Albany on the Record, which will be held in Albany on May 5th. The purpose of the event is to get the state’s top elected officials to tell New Yorkers how they will restore the public’s trust, and put them on the record for what reforms they will fight for during the next legislative session. Albany on the Record will be webcast live from Empire State Plaza. The Brennan Center, Citizens Union, Common Cause, the League of Women Voters, and NYPIRG are joining Reinvent Albany in sponsoring this event.
