I am running for Public Advocate in the City of New York, and a poll was commissioned, and with 20 days out, I was polling at 5% on the Democratic line. Who wins the Democratic line wins the election.
You can watch the movie Banking on Bitcoin: https://youtu.be/6jSm9vTBGKU?t=2786 here.
The legislator never held hearings on the license. The New York Department of Financial Services should have sent the bill to the Assembly and the Senate for an honest public discussion. It never happened. I documented everything over the past few years.
I could win this race if I could blanket the New York City Market with TV ads, but I need the help of the whole community to buy those ads.
This video is a preview of the ad. The voice of the activist has been changed but will be broadcast with the actual voice.
To help buy the ads, you must be an American Citizen. Unfortunately, I tried setting up a BitPay page, but it doesn't work: https://bitpay.com/186073/donate. I am stuck with this page instead: https://www.nycvotes.org/campaigns/theochino/contributions/new
If elected, I will hammer the system for the BitLicense going away, as published on my website: https://pubadvocate.nyc/bitcoin
