Say You’re In for the Open and Accountable Elections Act in Portland
Across Oregon, corporate and megadonor money has way too much influence in our elections — affecting who can run for office, the issues that are debated, who wins, and ultimately, the public policy made.
But Portland’s Open and Accountable Elections Act — an innovative resolution that would make matching funds available to candidates who seek small donations and reject campaign contributions from Big Business and the rich — would put We the People back in charge.
New York City has already created a similar program — and it represents a real commitment to amplifying the voices of small donors in city politics and diluting the influence of wealthy special interests.
Portland could be the next to lead the way!
