Please consider signing the petition attached to this post if you share concerns about money from corporations and unions influencing politics at every level:

The public recognizes the need to reduce the influence of money in politics at every level of government. Politicians and parties have given lip service to election finance reforms at the civic level, but meaningful action has been lacking.
