"The opposition [to nonpartisan elections] has worked overtime to shut down dialogue, and yet they have not been able to shut it down."Attorney to NYC Independence Party organizations Harry Kresky testifies before the Charter Revision Commission at the Queens Boro Hall, Wednesday, July 28,2010, regarding nonpartisan elections for city offices.
"You can't say that we won't put this reform on the ballot because the very forces that it's designed to do something about (partisan special interests) are going to be vehemently opposed."
"This is a fight. This is a real New York City throw-down. Let the voters decide."Harry Kresky
