With a growing concentration of wealth and political power in the hands of a very small elite, we are losing what made America great. Too often, it seems like our government has been conquered by an army of lobbyists, special interests, and career politicians who no longer act on our behalf.
It is all too easy to respond with cynicism, but the stakes are simply too high to give up.
As Secretary of State, I will stand up to big money in politics and a Supreme Court that thinks corporations are people. I will modernize our voter registration and small business registration systems to reduce bureaucratic barriers to voting and enterprise. I will upgrade our voter guide to offer Californians real information on candidates and ballot measures, getting beyond mud-slinging TV ads.
We can take our democracy back.
As a good government advocate for the past 18 years with non-partisan organizations like Common Cause and the Public Interest Research Groups, I’m ready to lead. Please join me in bringing elections with integrity back to California and get involved with our campaign.
