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. If they win, you lose.
Good changes are happening in cities, states, and countries where people are doing two things: taking to the streets and taking to the ballot box.
People are stepping up – there are 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, Jena Goodman for Lt. Governor, Ellen Brown for Treasurer, David Curtis for Secretary of State, and there are others.
Our focus is solutions. Implement a State Bank to save money on interest and invest in us, not Wall Street bankers. Tax the super-rich the way we did decades ago (when the rich could still get richer, and...) when we were a state filled with great opportunities. Change our spending priorities from prisons to schools. By taking no corporate money, we are free to do it, not just talk 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.
If you are able to help with this No Corporate Money campaign, please know that we will treasure your support! Your financial donations are amazingly important, as we spread the word in California, a state that affects what happens in the country and the world. See the donate button, or click here!
Another world is possible – thank you for all you do,
