DEFEND AND REVITALIZE THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS
Decisions currently made by Congress are increasingly dependent on the highest bidder regardless of the will of the people. As a consequence of decisions such as Citizens United, billions of dollars are flowing into our elections and the politicians’ votes are being bought by the special interest groups that promise to fund their campaigns. I seek to protect our current democracy by taking the people’s voice back to the political process. Since I do not have a Super-PAC, my campaign is funded solely by small donations from regular citizens so that I am beholden to no one but the American people. We need a new Voting Rights Act to not only protect the integrity of the process but to overturn Citizens United and bring the concept of one person, one vote back as the Constitution intended.
