Sign petition to get big money out of elections | Letter

Nearing the end of the campaign to get Initiative 735 on Washington’s 2016 ballot, we are reaching out for a hand.

Nearing the end of the campaign to get Initiative 735 on Washington’s 2016 ballot, we are reaching out for a hand.

“Get Big Money Out of Elections!” will ask the voters if money is free speech, and whether corporations should have the same rights as persons, as the Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United vs. FEC in 2010. This high court decision seriously undermines fairness in our elections.

A grassroots movement, with only volunteers, is getting close to the deadline. We are close to reaching the required number of signatures, but there is still some question on this. If you are one of those many people who care about this issue, you can help by either:

Calling (206) 547-9961, the WAmend office, or

Going to the website,, where you can fill out a quick form to have petitions mailed to you.

Another option – call a volunteer at 425 328-4518 and someone will deliver a petition to you.

Just a few signatures may make the difference whether this gets on the ballot next year, or not.

Let’s do this and make Washington the 17th state in the process.

Nancy Hansen, Kenmore
