DARK$$$$$ IS NOT OUR FRIEND

...Dark $$$$ … NO full disclosure … NO transparency … Who honestly, actually controls Arizona, IF, you say the voters, taxpayers, citizens you are totally deluding yourself… It matters NOT the political affiliation of those seeking office what matters is to whom are they beholding, to whom are they loyal … that’s key, everything else is fluff…

 

 

April started out as a discouraging month for fans of transparency in government, but ended with a surge of public support for democracy and Red for Ed.

Dirty Money backers showed how much strong support they have in the Legislature and the Governor’s Office.  In  response to the voters of Tempe’s overwhelming support in March for a Charter Amendment that banned dirty money in city elections, the Legislature rushed to pass and the Governor signed a bill which took away the City’s power to pass disclosure rules.  But, Arizona cities were not deterred.  Phoenix has approved in concept their own disclosure ordinance and Tucson is considering doing the same.  Thankfully, we have officials who still represent the people.  And, the people have repeatedly said they want transparency in elections.

Late in April, hundreds of thousands of dollars in undisclosed, Dirty Money poured into the Special Election in Congressional District 8.

Help Arizona Outlaw Dirty Money.  Please circulate a petition to get the Stop Political Dirty Money amendment on the ballot. 

But, even the Legislators could hear the roar of thousands of red shirted education supporters.  Red for Ed surrounded the state Capitol in support of funding for public schools.  Although they tried to sneak away, Legislators ultimately passed a much better budget for the schools under the watchful eye of the Red for Ed supporters.  It became clear to those in the Legislative galleries and around Arizona that public schools are in so much trouble because of Dirty Money.  The Dirty Money forces have been encouraging our lawmakers to push money away from our public schools.  It’s time to end their control!
