  • Fully Fund Montgomery County's Fair Elections Program

    210 signatures

    571.pngMontgomery County was the first county in the state to establish a program to get big money out of local elections and empower small donors. Now, candidates are starting to use the program so we need to ensure it is properly funded for the upcoming elections.

    An Independent Commission made funding recommendations for the program to County Executive Leggett who has provided an additional $4 million in his FY18 budget. Now we are just $1 million short of realizing the full potential of the fair elections program.

    The small donor program will elevate the voice of everyday citizens and reduce the influence of corporate donors by providing limited matching funds for small donors if the candidates don’t take large and corporate contributions. 

    Montgomery County took a big step by passing a small donor incentive program that encourages candidates to spend time fundraising from small donors within their constituency rather than dialing for big dollars.

    We're almost there in the fight against big money! Sign below to tell the Montgomery County Council to fully fund Montgomery County's fair elections program.

    We the undersigned agree that a public school is no place for the kinds of hateful and intolerant rhetoric Donald Trump's campaign promotes. We also agree that bringing Donald Trump's divisive message to Stephen Decatur fosters an environment of danger and controversy that will disrupt the learning process. 

    Allowing Trump to use Stephen Decatur High School as a tool to broadcast his divisive message stands against the principles Stephen Decatur High School expects it's students, teachers, and staff to adhere to every day. 

    Sign our petition below to ask that Wednesday's planned rally with Donald Trump be canceled. Let's let Donald Trump take his bigoted message elsewhere. Let's show that that his message is not welcome here.
