Check it Out: WV Citizens for Clean Elections’ Julie Archer has an op-ed in the Charleston Gazette-Mail: Lawmakers need to protect, promote right to vote
Early on in our work to address environmental problems, OVEC recognized the need to address a root cause of every issue we tackle: special interest money in politics. Politicians write the laws that are supposed to address these issues, and the courts step in when those laws are broken.
But, extractive industries can exert enormous influence over lawmakers and judges through hefty campaign contributions.
If you are fed up with politics as usual, don’t give up: Jump in! Get involved with our work with WVCCE. For starters, help West Virginia Citizens for Clean Elections advance the Pro-Democracy, Anti-Corruption Platform right now: sign our petition to members of the WV Legislature asking them to join you in supporting this set of common sense policy solutions.
