Fulani and NYC Independence Party on Nonpartisan Elections: The People Will Decide!

Independent leader Lenora Fulani introduces Dr. Jessie Fields, Vice Chair of the Manhattan County Committee of the Independence Party of New York, a physician in the Harlem community, at the August 10, 2010 press conference in defense of nonpartisan elections for New York City, a recommendation now before the mayoral appointed Charter Revision Commission.

Dr. Fields: "Nonpartisan elections is about improving the quality of our democracy, and that is as American as apple pie..... The words 'political party' are not in the Constitution... We should--we MUST--put nonpartisan elections on the ballot and let the people decide."
