Strengthening Democracy

Strengthening Democracy

Bill will fight to overturn the disastrous Citizen’s United Supreme Court decision that allows unlimited sums of “dark” money into our political system.

Bill believes that all forms of campaign funding should be transparent, and that the spike in money in our politics from corporations, special interest groups, and the astronomical sums that the ultra-wealthy can pump into elections has eroded our democracy.

Another disturbing practice is the system of electoral district drawing, also known as Gerrymandering, which essentially allows politicians to pick their voters – when we all know it’s meant to be the other way around.

Bill will work towards a more independent system of district drawing. Removing politicians (as much as possible) from the district design process is good for democracy.
