NYC has a 6-to-1 matching rate for small donations to political campaigns. Candidates who join this voluntary program are eligible to receive up to $1050 per contributor. Those in support of the program believe it enables more candidates to run, and prevents the abuses of a "pay to play" mentality. Those against feel the system can still be bypassed by loopholes, and it's a waste of taxpayer money. Do you support small-dollar public matching funds in Nassau County?

Political corruption of elected State officials is the most essential problem, not state aid to education. This could be most effectively remedied by a NYS Constitutional Amendment barring the election of any state official and legislators for more than two term.
