This is not a year for politics-as-usual

Albany has let us down time and again, but we have had one bright spot in our state government: the Attorney General’s office. Our outstanding Attorneys General have done incredible work for the people of New York and, in this election year, we need to make sure our next Attorney General is ready and able to continue the fight for New Yorkers. In the race for Attorney General, that candidate is Eric Dinallo.

Eric put violent criminals behind bars as a prosecutor in Robert Morgenthau’s office, held Wall Street accountable as Assistant Attorney General under Eliot Spitzer, stood up to health insurance companies and won health care for 400,000 kids as our state’s top insurance regulator, and protected average investors as an internal watchdog in private financial firms.  As Attorney General Eric will do what he has done throughout his career: take on the biggest fights on behalf of everyday New Yorkers.
