The Scandal of Reform

Amidst speculation in some circles that the nation may be entering a new Progressive era, the New York experience offers a fascinating and cautionary lesson on the state of political reform. New York is home to the most generous campaign finance program in the country - and some of the least competitive elections. What do the experiences of New York and other cities teach us? What does a robust reform agenda look like in the 21st century?

Come join the New America Foundation for a discussion of political reform in urban America.
