Campaign Finance

The only good reforms are those that restrict legislator's power.
The only bad reforms are those that restrict citizen's rights.
  1. Employees and union members whose withholding includes political contributions, must be informed in writing and consent in writing to the use of their money for political purposes. This "informed consent" Campaign Reform Initiative will be on the June Ballot.
  2. Neither voters nor candidates should have universal term limits imposed on them by government. However, voluntary limits for Congressional Candidates are proposed in a November Ballot Initiative. Since I believe political office should not be a career, I have signed a pledge to limit myself to three terms in Congress.
  3. Voters, as employers of public officials, should know who has contributed to the candidate's campaign. Since I support full disclosure, I have agreed to post contribution information normally published by the FEC on this website within 24 hours of deposit.
