Mass. Citizens Commission Press Conference
January 29, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm UTC+0
In 2018, over 70% of Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly supported Ballot Question 2, putting our Commonwealth squarely behind an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to enable reasonable limits on money in elections so we the people are heard and represented. Massachusetts joined 20 other states so far that have called for this amendment, and then went a step further: Creation of a Citizens Commission to give the people a voice in the process and ensure our elected officials worked to advance this amendment. You made this happen– more than 1,000 volunteers helped collect 130,000 signatures to reach the ballot and win!
So please come to the State House to celebrate and join the Commission as they launch the first report at a press conference on January 29th.
Throughout 2019, hundreds of Bay Staters attended public hearings across the Commonwealth to give testimony about the impact of unlimited money in our elections on their lives, communities, and businesses. Members of the Commission recently submitted the first report to Governor Baker, Attorney General Healey, Secretary of State Galvin, House Speaker DeLeo, and President of the Senate Spilka. The Public, media, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey and other elected public officials are invited and encouraged to attend the press conference to launch this report.
