Newburgh Heights Annual Democracy Day Public Forum to Discuss Money in Politics
What did You think of the amount of corporate and PAC money spent on this past election? Do You think there is too much money in politics? Do You think corporations should be treated as persons in an election? In November, 2012, 73% of the voters in Newburgh Heights voted in support of an ordinance calling for a constitutional amendment declaring that: A. Only human beings, not corporations, are legal persons with constitutional rights and;
B. Money is not equivalent to speech and, there regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech. Come and voice YOUR thoughts on the impact of political contributions by corporations, unions, Political Action Committees (PACs) and Independent Expenditure-Only Committees (Super PACs) in connection with the most recent election at this public meeting. Each person will have up to 5 minutes to speak. For more information, call Councilwoman Dorene Kray, 216-441-3532.
