NYSACDL @ Work: Urging Governor Cuomo to Sign Prosecutorial Conduct Commission Bill

NYSACDL @ Work: Urging Governor Cuomo to Sign Prosecutorial Conduct Commission Bill!



From President Robert G. Wells:

It’s important that our membership be aware of the crucial work accomplished by NYSACDL in your name.

Our Legislative Committee has been engaged in effecting changes in our Criminal justice System and resulting in in the law being passed in both houses to create a statewide Prosecutorial Conduct Commission. This is the first time this has been accomplished, and the proposed (and passed) new law is on it’s way to the Governor’s desk.

We have, and are, facing great opposition to this from the District Attorney’s Association of the State of New York, and its powerful allies.

But equally, we have been successful in our fights in the Senate and the Assembly over these objections.

We have met repeatedly and often in the state capitol with legislators and their staffs with the help of our able lobbyist, Jennifer Richardson. I have taken the podium and spoken at multiple issues several times this winter and spring to speak publicly on the issues.

We are visible.

We are heard.

We are known and recognized by the legislators in Albany, gaining access and we are addressing Criminal Justice Reforms with the press.

I want you to know this organization’s voice, joined with others, is being heard effectively.
