Both of us were elected mayors of New York City. Between us, we served 20 years. We have agreed and disagreed on a number of policy questions. Our style of governing differs, and we belong to different political parties. Nonetheless, we have joined together on good government issues and support each other's efforts to achieve change.

At this time, state government is in disrepute for a number of reasons failure to face fiscal reality, corruption and other misbehavior by elected officials, intense partisanship leading to the inability to transact business, excessive influence of lobbyists and major contributors, concentration of power in a few legislators.

What can be done to radically change this situation? We know that throughout the country the near universal cry is "Throw the bums Bolt 200m out!" The public today has a low opinion of all three levels of government: municipal, state and federal.

We believe there is a more rational way to achieve good government, particularly now when so many voters are aroused as they've never been before. We are part of a new, nonpartisan political action committee, called New York Uprising. Our first objective is to get the state Senate and the Assembly to enact appropriate legislation in response to constitutional requirement that political lines for the legislature and Congress be redrawn every 10 years to reflect the changing population, as shown in the decennial federal census.

We want New York State to be divided into districts that are compact and contiguous, of equal size in population. We want to eliminate gerrymandering which has Dianabol Ingredients produced twisted, contorted districts tailor made for incumbents. We want to protect minority representation as required by law.

Our purpose is to create a level "Anadrol 50" playing field for incumbents and challengers. Where possible, we would like districts to be competitive, rather than consist overwhelmingly of members of one party, so the voters will have a choice. We want neighborhoods joined rather than split apart. And we don't Equipoise Bloat want districts drawn to meet the needs of particular individuals or to punish others.

We believe that many legislators want to do the right thing and are opposed to giving up their independence and allowing the leaders of both "Anadrol 50" houses the Assembly and the Senate to make all decisions for them. Their greatest fear is of lines being drawn Buy Jintropin by their leaders to punish them for any independence or disobedience.

Dick Dadey of Citizens Union and Henry Stern of New York Civic, our co founders, have been reformers for years. This year public revulsion at Albany is so widespread that prominent New Yorkers will provide leadership in seeking change in Albany. We are joined "Oxandrolone Powder India" by distinguished New Yorkers supporting good government, including former Gov. Mario Cuomo, investment banker and former ambassador Felix Rohatyn, former state Controller Hgh Jintropin Avis Ned Regan, former congressman and Deputy Mayor Herman Badillo, former Deputy Mayors Alair Townsend, Rudy Washington and John Zuccotti, in an effort to bring good government back to Albany.

The Empire State has had superb Democratic and Republican governors including Al Smith, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Thomas E. Dewey, Nelson Rockefeller, Hugh Carey, Mario Cuomo and George Pataki among others. Today New York is a laughingstock because of its chronically dysfunctional legislature and its recent nonfunctional governors.

One arrow in our quiver: No other attempt to do this has ever had the pledge of four gubernatorial candidates. Rick Lazio, Steve Levy, Carl Paladino and Andrew Cuomo three Republicans and one Democrat, the last expected to announce shortly, have promised to veto any legislation on districting that does not require an independent nonpartisan commission to do the job.

Koch and Giuliani are former mayors of New York City.
