Let Mike Tolkin participate in the Mayoral Debate!

This petition had 75 supporters

Mike Tolkin's campaign has raised and spent over $500,000, and as such, the New York City Campaign Finance Board has qualified Mike Tolkin to participate in the general election Mayoral debate with Mayor Bill de Blasio on 10/10. But its co-sponsor, NY1, refuses to allow him to participate on the basis of having run an "unorthodox campaign."

We desperately need to reimagine our politics. Discriminating against new ideas and fresh approaches is not only undemocratic; it's dumb.

No individual should ever be unfairly excluded from a critical part of our election process - and certainly not someone who is so significantly elevating our public discourse around issues like homelessness and economic injustice. 

The most vulnerable and oppressed New Yorkers feel invisible and without a voice. Mike Tolkin refuses to allow them to live in the shadows any longer.
