This Thursday, April 24, 2008, Pittsburgh City Council will finally have a preliminary vote on Campaign Finance Reform. The final vote is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28, 2008. Passing the CFR legislation would be a first, giant step towards achieving "Clean" government in Pittsburgh.
Cities around the nation have felt the positive impact of CFR municipal laws: an increase in voters' trust and engagement with local government, an increase in the caliber of candidates seeking office and political campaigns engaging in more grassroots, face to face campaigning.
Respected and trusted local and statewide organizations, including Common Cause, Democracy Rising, 14th Ward Independent Democratic Club, the League of Women Voters, the PA League of Young Voters and PUMP have all joined in support of CFR.
Please help us take that next step, call or email council members, let them know you believe CFR is necessary and urge them to vote for the legislation.
