NYC Charter Revision Hearing on Nonpartisan Elections 8.2.10

I am uploading video so check back Tuesday morning for the results.

In the meantime, let me say that a lively debate ensued. Sarah Lyons, Chair of the Staten Island County Committee of the Independence Party of New York testified, as did Dick Dadey of Citizens Union. The Commission was quite engaged and had a number of questions for Dadey.

Check here for NY1 report by Grace Rauh.

"We need to do something now to reinvigorate the voters, to give them the choices they demand. The reason they don't participate now is because they know their votes don't matter," said Dick Dadey of Citizens Union.
