Reclaim New York Statement on Compensation Committee

“New York politicians are at it again, putting their well-being above that of the average New Yorker. Instead of putting forth ethics reform, increased accountability and transparency, or tackling the crippling affordability crisis plaguing our state, they just approved a 63% pay raise to pad their own pockets at the expense of the New York taxpayer. Most New Yorkers wished they received a 5% raise, let alone a 63% raise over three years. New Yorkers deserve better for the pretty penny they are about to pay for their government.”
