CLC Letter to Mayor Steve Adler on Charter Review Commission Recommendations


Campaign Legal Center sent a letter to Austin, Texas Mayor Steve Adler urging him to support the Charter Review Commission's recommendations that would place measures on the November ballot to establish an Independent Ethics Commission and a Democracy Dollars public campaign financing program. Public financing can elevate the voices of all citizens in the political process, not just those who write large checks. Public funding programs can also reorient our elections by facilitating dialogue between voters and elected officials and increasing participation in the electoral process.
