We need public financing of campaigns so that elected officials are accountable to voters, not Big Money donors. Unfortunately, in California public financing of campaigns is banned due to Proposition 73, a bad initiative that was enacted in 1988. Now, California has the opportunity to lead the way in public financing of elections.
The DISCLOSE Act SB 1107, currently sitting on Governor Brown's desk, would lift the ban and allow public financing of campaigns. Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is supporting our sister organization People Demanding Action in the effort to push Governor Brown to sign SB 1107 into law. If you live in California, Click here now to call Governor Brown and tell him to sign SB 1107. If you live elsewhere, click here to support the effort on social media and with a donation.
Money short? Then contact Mike "Phone Guy" Fox to sign up to make important movement mobilizing phone calls or contact PDA Field Coordinator Judy Hess to get help organizing in your area.
