                                  MOLINARO: Limits Himself to Two Terms

                                                   START WITH ME
Will Demand Up-or-Down Term Limit Vote in Senate and Assembly as Part of  '2019 Accountable Government Act'  
Albany, NY - New York gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro today pledged to limit himself to two terms of service when elected governor.

Molinaro's pledge is to show leadership on the issue as he will also call for an up-or-down vote in both the New York State Assembly and New York State Senate for term limits on all statewide elected offices and the state legislature.

"Start with me," Molinaro said. "To show the legislature I am serious, I will start with my own imposed term limits, with or without them."

Molinaro's plan would limit statewide officeholders to two, four-year terms and members of the legislature to six, two-year terms or twelve years.

The term limit initiative is Molinaro's second announced plank of his "2019 Accountable Government Act," a bold ethics reform plan that he will continue to roll out this summer.

Molinaro announced last week that he would work to outlaw "pay-to-play" transactions in Albany by banning political donations from any individual or entity seeking or holding a state government contract or special relationship.

"All New Yorkers suffer from a broken Albany and failed leadership from a Governor who doesn't understand right from wrong," Molinaro said.

"It is time to return power to the ordinary New Yorkers and not the rich and powerful friends and donors of this administration. Term limits will be a long overdue start to restore honesty and integrity to state government," he continued.

"As Governor, I will bring term limits to the floor of both houses and ask every member to vote so New Yorkers can see first hand who stands with them and who protects the status quo," Molinaro concluded.
