2018 ELECTIONS: BRING THE CHANGE
SO, HOW DO WE CHANGE OUR CAMPAIGN FINANCE SYSTEM?…
Premise: To bring systemic change, we have to have elected officials knowledgeable about real campaign finance reform options and the ways to work together with others to change our laws.
Step 1. We must elect representatives who commit to making change.
Get to know your new 2018 candidates as well as the incumbents. To find out where they stand on changing the system, attend Meet & Greets, forums, fundraisers, panels, or just call them up, email, or use social media to ask your questions. Let’s start with finding out if they see a problem with the system as it is.
This is the first of our candidate questions. More details about ways to use these questions will follow over the next months.
Our second question. Our first one asked about the cost of campaigns. Now we want to find out if the candidate is comfortable with the current system of funding campaigns and, if so, why, and, if not, why.
