Maine State Pledge

I join the overwhelming majority of Maine to demand an amendment to the United States Constitution to end the domination of big money in politics and give voice to all Americans.
I will stand with Maine, without regard to party or other differences, and urge all candidates and elected officials to do the same, in order to pass and ratify such a constitutional amendment as soon as possible.

Millions of people in states around the country have seen their elections dominated by big money from outside sources. And this spending has real consequences. Following the $14 billion 2020 election cycle, a wave of restrictive voting laws have cropped up in state legislatures. Voter restrictions and unlimited political spending combined further relegate political influence to wealthy elites while diminishing the power the rest of us hold.

The Problem of Foreign Money in Politics

The Problem of Foreign Money in Politics Report Showcases How Foreign Interests Are Spending Massive Amounts of Money in U.S. Elections.

I want my children to say ‘my mom was an entrepreneur, and she helped pass an amendment to overturn Citizen’s United.’ I would like them to see that they can innovate, build, achieve their dreams, enjoy living in and working in Maine, and participate in our democracy on equal terms with all other citizens.

As an average American, it is nearly impossible to compete with billionaires, but what they can’t buy with money is the deep love and passion we feel for the outdoors and the freedom our Constitution guarantees.

We need to repair the Constitutional foundation for election spending reform so that all Americans may participate in self-government as equal citizens. I hope all Americans can come together with American Promise to help in this urgent, cross-partisan work.

Big money privileges those with the means to pour unlimited amounts of money into campaigns, which drowns out the voices of all Americans, especially those living in poverty and experiencing the harmful effects of institutional and social racism.
