Petition Statement

I urge that all candidates for office be asked to sign the following statement of intent ... As a candidate for ......., I pledge that, during the term of office I am running for, that I will undertake a serious bipartisan effort to reform campaign finance laws and free the decision-making of elected officials from the moneyed interests.
There are currently 29 signatures. We need 50 signatures!

Petition Background

Both parties are way too obligated to moneyed interests and thus do not approach important issues with an open mind. The only way to change this is to radically change campaign finance laws and procedures. My suggestion is a massive bipartisan petition drive to seek commitment from ALL candidates from ALL parties for ALL positions - federal, state and local - to seriously look to reform campaign financing in their next term in office. Those who agree and those who do not should be widely publicized. We can then monitor the results and vote accordingly.
