Bartoletti will speak about how that decision contributes to New York’s need for campaign finance reform, along with other issues that include: contribution limits that are set too high, an abundance of loopholes and the unfettered influence of special interest groups and large donors.

“Everybody is a voter, and everybody should have a chance to vote for good candidates who are not bought and paid for by large corporations,” Sears-Mack said. “I think we will insist that we are heard, and that our battle will be heard by the Supreme Court, and that stuff like Citizen’s United, that said corporations are individuals, will be overturned.”
