New York CIty Council Member Ben Kallos

Pledge to Turn Over the Ballot on November 6, 2018

I pledge to turn over my ballot on Tuesday, November 6 to vote on all three questions.

Question 1, is on Campaign Finance Reform that proposes to do the following:

  • Lower Contribution Limits by More than Half - lower limits city-wide from $5,100 to $2,000, borough-wide from $3,950 to $1,500 and for City Council from $2,850 to $1,000.
  • Make Small Dollars More Valuable - every small dollar below $250 for citywide and $175 for all others will go from being matched with public taxpayer dollars at a rate of 6 to a rate of 8.
  • Match More Small Dollars - only a little more than half of small dollars are matched, requiring candidates to seek millions in big dollars from special interests to fill a gap that can be smaller by matching 75%.
