I am asking for your vote. We can replace corporate power with people power by supporting and voting for "No Corporate Money" candidates. The goal is to win elections and champion the solutions we know exist.
We can have better health, housing, jobs, justice, education, and environment. It is entirely possible – especially here in California, which is still a wealthy state.
How do we get solutions implemented? It’s time we stop doing what supports the 1%. They like it when we don't vote, or when we vote for candidates that take corporate money – which unfortunately includes almost all conventional candidates. But that's changing.
In the cities, states, and countries that have enjoyed significant positive change, people are doing two things: taking to the streets and taking to the ballot box.
People are stepping up – there are already strong candidates running in 2014. We’re hoping many others will join us and run without taking corporate money so we can all walk our talk when we’re in office. Luis Rodriguez is running for Governor, Ellen Brown for Treasurer, and there are others. Our focus is solutions, like implementing a State Bank for California to save money on interest and invest in us, not Wall Street, and like changing our spending priorities from prisons to schools – doing it, not just talking about it.
That is why I am running for state controller of California, And that is why I am asking for your vote on June 3, 2014. This campaign is not about sending a message and hoping that our corporate controlled government will listen. It's about winning.
Thank you for coming to this website. It’s in development, and so please check back frequently.
And if you are able to help with this No Corporate Money campaign, please know that we will treasure your support! Soon, we will get the volunteer page up and running – we are now developing the capacity to use your volunteer efforts. If you are able to contribute to the campaign financially, hallelujah! Early money is amazingly important, as we cover California from the far north to the far south. See the donate button, or click here!
Another world is possible – thank you for all you do,
