135 Candidates Have Signed New York Uprising's Pledges to Reform Albany
Today New York Uprising announced that Assemblyman James D. Conte (R -10th AD), Assemblyman Joseph M. Giglio (R-149th AD), Ed Braunstein (D), candidate for the 26th AD, Gregory Johnson (R), candidate for the 116th AD and Arthur Garrison (R), candidate for the 126th AD have all New York Uprising's pledges to reform Albany. Pledge singers to date include candidates for Governor, New York State Attorney General, New York State Comptroller, New York State Senate, New York State Assembly and Congress. New York Uprising pledges committing to bring reform to Albany. New York Uprising has sent pledges to all candidates for office in New York State. Congressional candidates have been asked to support non-partisan independent redistricting since they are affected by the lines drawn. 
In recognizing these committed candidates Mayor Koch said:  "I applaud these candidates as true "Heroes of Reform" for signing the three New York Uprising pledges.  This year voters are counting on candidates to commit to specific reforms in advance, these candidates have done.  I look forward to working with them to see these reforms swiftly implemented should they be elected."
"This year's endless budget process clearly illustrates the need for the Legislature to enact real and substantive reforms in Albany," said Conte. "In addition to enacting tougher budgeting reforms to protect taxpayers, I look forward to working with NY Uprising and reform-minded legislators to ensure fair redistricting and equal representation," said Assemblyman Conte
New York Uprising, founded by former NYC Mayor Ed Koch, is a non-partisan coalition dedicated to reforming New York's dysfunctional state government.  It is led by Mayor Koch along with a Board of Trustees that includes former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former NYS Governor Mario Cuomo former NYS Comptroller Ned Regan, former US Congressman Herman Badillo, former Ambassador Felix Rohatyn, former Deputy Mayor Alair Townsend, former Deputy Mayor Rudy Washington, former Deputy Mayor Peter J.
