Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-12) is the first woman to represent this district. When she served on the New York City Council, she wrote the law that paved the way for the city’s campaign finance system, which allows for public matching funds. In Congress, she has led the charge on women’s issues, consumer rights, and protecting 9/11 first responders. In 2001, Maloney co-sponsored the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act which banned soft money in elections and strengthened disclosure laws. Maloney serves as Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
In office, Maloney helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote.
