Bill de Blasio on Government Reform

 

 


Battle corrupting influence of corporate money in politics

During my time in public office, I've taken on unscrupulous landlords; protected children who were victims of neglect and abuse; battled the corrupting influence of corporate money in politics; fought to repair broken policing policies; and championed working family issues like paid sick leave and living wage laws.

Citizens United is a body blow to our democracy

The Citizens United decision delivered a body blow to our democracy and a fair and equitable election system. Bill de Blasio has successfully pressured companies such as JPMorgan, & Citigroup to adopt policies against spending their corporate treasury dollars in elections. In August 2010, de Blasio also founded the Coalition for Accountability in Political Spending (CAPS), the nation's first and only bipartisan coalition of elected officials dedicated to curbing corporate influence in our elections
