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.

In January, we will add two more questions, as well as suggestions for using them and for sharing the answers and reactions to your questions.  If you use social media, check out our Facebook page, and our Twitter account, for more suggestions and updates on the latest articles on issues, such as, public funding, small donor matches, voter vouchers, transparency, tracking donor gifts to candidates and elected officials, and more.
