"We believe that corporations should not share the same rights as people, that unlimited and unreported corporate donations meant to sway the electoral process should not be considered freedom of speech, and that the government should regulate the raising and spending of money by corporations intended to influence elections. We cannot allow corporate money to manipulate our democracy."

      I believe every municipality in the country should pass this because corporate personhood effects us all from the ground up.... and this should be changed from the ground up.

      Pouring millions of unregulated corporate dollars into the election process removed "democracy" from the democratic process. Don't let the wealthy buy elections!

      Corporations are made up of people of various beliefs, political and otherwise. The corporate CEO and board given full authority to speak and donate according to their beliefs which are, to say the least, biased. NOT FAIR! Corporations are not persons. We must stop this plundering of our democracy!

      Multi national corporations are in charge of our government through the false idea that they are "persons". It's time to revoke "corporate personhood" and it needs to start with our towns and cities standing up for people as persons.
