STATEMENT ON NY GOVERNOR CUOMO'S NEW CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT SITE

Citizens Campaign for the Environment is flattered that the Governor has chosen to use “nycitizenscampaign.com” as a call to the public to become more engaged in government. For 26 years, Citizens Campaign for the Environment has worked to empower communities and advocate solutions. We are pleased that the Governor likes our name and agrees with the critical nature of bringing the public together to enhance democracy in New York. However, Citizens Campaign is hopeful that the Governor’s staff will be sensitive to the potential confusion the name similarities may cause. More information about the work of Citizens Campaign for the Environment can be found at www.citizenscampaign.org.
