Strong citizen voice is required to ensure healthy democracy
If it was just state lawmakers proposing yet another package of government reform legislation we’d be a little more skeptical. But the support of respected clean government advocates Wisconsin Democracy Campaign and Common Cause gives a voice to citizens we envisioned in our editorial agenda this year.
In fact, responsible campaign finance regulations and campaign contributions transparency for which Wisconsin was once a respected leader will not return without citizens working together to make it happen.
With a legislative majority and a state Supreme Court that has made open and transparent government secondary to campaign cash a strong citizen voice is required to ensure a healthy democracy.
For now we ask that you urge your local legislator to sign on as a cosponsor of the package before the June 21 deadline. We’ll get back to you on next steps after that.
