What is Eye On Albany Campaign 2002?

We are a guide to the races for New York City representatives to the New York State Legislature.

Who cares about the New York State Legislature?

You should. The New York State Senate and the New York State Assembly, though based in Albany, control much that is vital to the lives of residents of New York City, including how much rent and taxes you pay, who controls the schools your children attend, how Lower Manhattan will be rebuilt, and whether the water you drink is clean.

Why do you call it Eye On Albany?

Why not? We are keeping an eye out on all 91 contests for seats representing New York City, with a separate page for each race -- and, since most of the candidates are incumbents, assessments of their voting records.
