Emergency Alert -- It's not too late for Gov. Cuomo to grant executive 
clemency Governor Cuomo, during his final days in office, has the power 
to grant executive clemency to commute the sentences of people in prison.


  *You are receiving this emergency message because you wrote in support
  of clemency for David Gilbert.  Now Governor Cuomo is days away from
  leaving office, but there is still time for him to grant clemency to
  David and others. Please contact his office and urge him to grant
  these clemencies.*


  *Emergency Alert!*

  *It’s not too late for Governor Andrew Cuomo to grant executive
  clemency! *

Governor Cuomo, during his final days in office, has the power to grant 
executive clemency to commute the sentences of people in prison.

At this eleventh hour, he can do this with the stroke of a pen.

We must use these last few days to urge him to take positive action on 
pending clemency applications: David Gilbert’s but also those of the 
four other applicants named below.

Here is a way for him to burnish his legacy: to rise above the current 
political crisis and act with justice and compassion.

We urge Governor Cuomo to use the broad and exclusive executive clemency 
power to commute the sentences of Jon-Adrian (“JJ”) Velazquez (DIN 
00A2303), Bruce Bryant (DIN 96A5569), Paul Clark (DIN 82B1198), David 
Gilbert (DIN 83A6158), and Greg Mingo (DIN 83A0660), remarkable 
individuals who have served many years in prison – in some cases, up to 
40 years - and who are exemplars of what people can accomplish in our 
State’s correctional system, as they have dedicated their lives to 
education, AIDS education and peer counseling, faith, self-improvement, 
and rehabilitation. Their clemency applications have been thoroughly 
reviewed by the Governor’s Clemency Bureau. These candidates present 
especially compelling and meritorious cases for executive clemency and 
each enjoys widespread support in a variety of constituencies.


        IN THE NEXT 10 DAYS!
