To The Editor:
This November 6, voters in New York have the chance to end corruption in Albany, once and for all.
They have the chance to end the “pay to play” culture that is systemic in awarding public contracts.
They have the chance to end “three men in a room” legislative and budget deals.
They have the chance to close the LLC political contribution loophole that allows political dark money to corrupt and pollute the campaign finance process.
In order to do so, voters have to elect a truly independent candidate for Governor.
That candidate is former Mayor of Syracuse, Stephanie Miner, who is running on the Serve America Movement line which will appears at 1-I on the ballot.
Miner is the only independent minor party candidate who has had executive experience governing the State’s fifth largest city for eight years.
As we watch leaders from both major parties get sentenced to prison terms at the close of this year, it is apparent that blind loyalty to the two major party candidates will produce only more of the same corruption.
To those who say that voting for an independent candidate for Governor is a wasted vote, I would respond that you are wasting your vote by voting for more of the same corruption.
It is often said that Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
The only sane choice for Governor is Stephanie Miner located at 1-I on the ballot.
