I Support Clean ElectionsSubmitted by Mike on Tue, 11/29/2011 - 15:13
Republicans on the Legal and Veteran's Affairs Committee have voted along party lines to begin to dismantle the Clean Election Act, Maine's system of public campaign financing.
This is an affront to the large majority of Mainers who voted to put Maine's system of clean elections in place ten years ago and a slap in the face to the sixty percent of us who voted just three weeks ago in favor of strong, fair and open democracy in Maine.
The future of clean elections in Maine will now be decided by the Republican-controlled Legislature and Governor LePage. If they continue down the path set by the committee, the result will be greater corporate influence in our elections and increased corporate control of our government.
Once again, we stand at a critical point in protecting Maine's democracy. Please add your name below to show your support.
