Pay-to-Play on the Island

In Suffolk County, there’s a new proposal to ban political contributions from county employees and those doing business with the county.

Alden’s proposal, which remains in draft form, would set a ballot referendum to ask voters to make illegal political contributions from county employees, people doing business with the county, recipients of funding from the county’s Industrial Development Agency and anyone seeking a county elected office.

The proposal also bans political contributions from nonprofit organizations.
