A small-donor matching program in Prince George's County will:
-Make county government accountable to all of us by giving candidates the opportunity to reject big donors and special interests money and to instead seek support from everyday residents
-Amplify the voice of the average contributor through a tiered match system
-Increase participation in county elections by empowering small donors
-Break down the barriers to running for office by allowing county residents with strong ideas and a call to public service to run for office, regardless of their personal connections to wealthy donors or corporate contributors
As a resident of Prince George's County, I urge our council members to support and pass legislation to reduce the power of corporations, developers, and wealthy donors and ensure everyday residents have a bigger voice in our elections. Vote yes on CB-4 to establish the Fair Election Fund!
