Evan Glass Testimony on Public Financing

March 2014

Two years ago, Montgomery County created a Public Election Fund that matches individual donations for County Executive and County Council candidates. I strongly advocated for this because it opens the doors of elected office to individuals of all diverse socio-economic backgrounds and non-establishment candidates that represent the full spectrum of the community.

 

Public finance allows the voice of the people to prevail and prevents them from being drowned out by political action committees and corporations.

 

I am choosing to run for County Council under this reformed campaign system and together with your support we can bring about the progressive reforms that our communities deserve!
