Good Coverage in New Jersey

Public Campaign Action Fund is now Every Voice. Check out our new website: EveryVoice.org

New Jersey's well into the second cycle of its Clean Elections pilot project in three legislative districts and the local newspapers are doing a good job about covering the qualifying process for candidates, and getting the word out about the Clean Elections programs.

 

Check out the stories from the Trenton Times, Ashbury Park-Press, and the Star-Ledger which quotes Public Campaign Action Fund's David Donnelly (a New Jersey resident himself) on the public financing option: "This really does change the job descriptions of lawmakers. They are now going to be running for re-election without having to sit in a room and ask people for obscene amounts of money."

One of the main concerns from the last cycle was that the voters were not educated about the Clean Elections program. It looks like all parties are working harder to get the word out this time!
