As the New York Times reported this morning, we and our partners in the Fair Elections for New Yorkcampaign launched a new TV ad that will begin airing today in every market across New York State.

The new ad, “Listen to Us,” focuses on how Fair Elections will shift Albany’s priorities to be in line with the priorities of voters, instead of the priorities of CEO campaign contributors.

Here’s the transcript:

ANNCR: “Everyday New Yorkers just aren’t being heard because political campaigns are dominated by big money.

“…the politicians would have to listen to us for a change.”

“Join Governor Cuomo and pass the Fair Elections proposal.
