Ray La Raja Quoted on the Role of NYC’s Public Campaign Matching Funds Program in the Mayoral Election

Ray La Raja, Professor of Political Science at UMass Amherst, is quoted in an article about the impact of small donations in New York City’s mayoral race and the role of the city’s public campaign matching funds program. La Raja says, “New York is probably the most bold public financing program in the country. Politicians have an incentive to go speak to people who can’t give a lot of money. It encourages people to participate more in politics.” (The City, 6/7/21)
