Linda Mallet, Gary Zuckett and Maine state representative Boyd Marley discuss the success of Clean Elections in Maine and the West Virginia Clean Elections Act at a public reception at the University of Charleston. 

As an ambassador for clean, publicly funded elections, State Rep. Marley explains to an attentive audience that 77% of Maine's state Senate and 55% of the state representatives are Clean Elections legislators after the 2002 election. Attendees at the public reception learned all about this creative, voluntary system for financing elections.
