Campaign themes


Carsel's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

  • Excerpt: "I believe in election reforms, because as a Staten Islander, and an American, I am more than a little tired of being told I should be satisfied with the crumbs which fall from the table."
  • Excerpt: " We should have publicly financed elections. Not as a taxpayer ATM, and increasing taxes, but through the moneys the State already takes in. Connecticut has public financing of campaigns through the sale of abandoned property. There is no reason New York cannot do the same, or something similar."
  • Excerpt: "The terms of New York State legislators should be limited. Democracy is not well served by a legislator who has become an entrenched insider. Other states have successfully applied term limits to their legislators, so why can't we?"
  • Excerpt: "Outside income must be strictly monitored and limited. The loopholes which allow for just about unlimited contributions to campaigns must be closed. New York State should start listening to groups like Common Cause, the New York Public Interest Research Group and NYU's Brennan Center for Justice."
