December 19, 2022 — Citizens Union, Common Cause NY, the League of Women Voters of the City of New York, NYPIRG and Reinvent Albany have sent a letter to NYC Council Speaker Adrienne Adams and Majority Leader and Rules Committee Chair Keith Powers, calling on the Council to hold a public confirmation hearing for the New York County Democratic nominee for Commissioner of Elections and take transparent measures that would vet the nominee’s experience and fitness to administer elections.

The City Council is the only elected body with some power to impact the selection of commissioners to the NYC Board of Elections. They must exercise their authority in reviewing nominees to make an impact on the Board’s leadership and improve New York’s elections.
