Campaign spending is out of control. In Berkeley, 7 of
the last 8 City Council races went to the candidate who raised the most
money, as did the last mayor’s race. We need a system where candidates
can successfully run for office even if they don’t have connections to
Berkeley Fair Elections, a small donor matching funds program, is a tangible solution
that would drive candidates to spend more time talking with voters and less
time dialing for dollars!
A key Berkeley Council vote is happening this Tuesday, February
23, and we need to keep the pressure on! Please take 2
minutes to email Berkeley City Council so they hear us loud and clear: "Vote YES at your Feb 23 meeting to put the Fair Elections Act on
the 2016 ballot!"
Vote YES on Item 20 for Fair Elections
