Campaign Finance Reform - OLD

Submitted by Bill Crosier on February 12, 2006 - 2:22pm. :: |

Note: This is an old (2006) version, which has been superceded by a new resolution (2/2008) entitled "Texas Public Campaign Financing". WHEREAS Candidates for public office now depend upon large contributions to run competitive campaigns; and WHEREAS Elected officials often operate on behalf of contributors who use their wealth to control government decision making; and WHEREAS Members of Congress often represent their own interests, special interests and their political party before considering the interests of the people they were elected to represent; and WHEREAS Even highly principled officials who want to stay in office to serve their constituents are forced into highly objectionable compromises in order to finance re-elections; therefore be it RESOLVED That we support: Comprehensive campaign finance reform and “clean money” public financing of all public elections encompassing local, state and national elections Submitted by Kris Graham on January 27, 2006
