Agree to limit outside political advertising in your campaign

Gary Skiba started this petition to J Paul Brown and Mike McLachlan

Outside funding has perverted our election process, largely due to the Citizens United decision. Corporations, unions, and even foreign entities can provide unlimited funds to try to buy elections. Their advertising is overwhelmingly negative, and often consists of half truths or outright lies. Senator Scott Brown and his challenger in the Massachusetts race for U.S. Senate signed an agreement in January that they call the “People’s Pledge” that has resulted in far less outside negative advertising. This petition urges Colorado Representative J Paul Brown and his challenger, Mike McLachlan, to create a similar agreement in their race for the Colorado House 59th District seat.
