"All political power is inherent in the people." -Article 1, Section 1, Michigan State Constitution
I believe in the power of people and our ability to look past differences to create something truly good for the world. What started as a facebook post has turned into the best thing I've ever done in my life. I get to volunteer with some of the most amazing people I've ever met, and it makes me fall more in love with our beautiful state every day.
I feel very fortunate to be able to volunteer with a truly non-partisan, citizen-led, initiative that is working to reform some of the systemic corruption in our political process. This is a campaign built for and by the people with our state, and I've seen it grow from a group of strangers to a network of passionate citizens joined together to create something better for Michigan.
The campaigns integrity I think is its largest asset, and the only way to keep it that way is by keeping it for and by the people, including the ways that it is funded. I don't think I've ever donated to a ballot initiative until this one, but now I see why it's so important. Printing and shipping ballots, holding events in locations across our state, paying for legal expertise, and basic things like a P.O. box and website, they are all critical to engaging all Michiganders so that they can decide what they think is truly fair for our state, and they all cost something. It's hard for any one of us to fund this, but when you get thousands of Michiganders to all pitch in what they can amazing things happen- like people deciding who their politicians are instead of politicians deciding who their voters are.
Put it in your calendar now- election day- November 6th of 2018 Voters Not Politicians should decide.
Voters should choose their politicians.
Not the other way around.
Politicians are manipulating our voting maps to keep themselves in power. It's time to change that to make your vote matter and your voice heard.
