Election Financing

Election Financing: As long as our political system is funded by large corporations and billionaire oligarchs, regular working people will see life get harder. I support the measures introduced by Bernie Sanders to create publicly financed elections; I will personally only raise money from people. (Corporations are not people.) We need a new class of politicians, funded by grassroots and small donations, who work directly for the people.  In past elections, I have refused to accept money out of disgust with the campaign finance system, but Bernie Sanders demonstrated the power of social media to raise money from ordinary citizens.  I will still refuse contributions from corporations, super PACs or their lobbyists.  I will only accept contributions from citizens and those who truly represent their interests: unions and non-profit advocacy groups.  Where does your Congressperson stand on campaign finance reform?ns, I will only accept contributions from citizens and those who truly represent their interests: unions and non-profit advocacy groups.

 

Here is a link to Peter Welch's funding.  Welch receives money from corporate pacs on a 3 to 1 ratio over real citizens.
