Open letter to Sen. Jeb Bradley in the Carroll County Independent

More than two-thirds of New Hampshire adults support a constitutional amendment to limit campaign contributions and spending, new polling data released today reveals. The statewide poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center on behalf of People For the American Way, Public Citizen, Free Speech For People and the New Hampshire Coalition for Open Democracy, found that 69 percent of the state feels that such an amendment should be in place – including majorities of Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

The poll also found that 72 percent of respondents oppose (62 percent strongly oppose and 10 percent somewhat oppose) the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which allows corporations to spend an unlimited amount of money to influence elections. The full results of the poll can be found here.

The NH House passed HCR-2, which closely resembles our town resolutions. The vote was unfortunately along party lines. We do not feel that this issue should be a partisan one, and have not heard a reason why it should be.

The resolution failed to pass at the Eaton Town Meeting. The hand vote appeared to be about 1/3 in favor to 2/3 not in favor. Those speaking against the resolution expressed that it was inappropiate for a town to pass, or disagreed with the wording. No alternate suggestions were made.

A meeting was held to finalize the Resolution wording, which was adopted unanimously. A new participant was brought up to speed by Joe, utilizing a short presentation.

Two Town coordinators were identified. Gail Munroe will gather petitions signatures for Madison; and Andy Davis for Albany.

Dick Pollock will recruit coordinators for the remaining Carroll County towns.

There was discussion about expanding our effort beyond Carroll County, and while we are in agreement that our ultimate goal is involvement by every New Hampshire town, we would require additional resources and people. Andy agreed to look into other statewide groups that may share our interests.

Eaton residents have reached the goal of 10 petition signatures to get our resolution on the Eaton Town Warrant.

Tonight we had a productive meeting with several new participants from Eaton and Conway. A working group of Ken McKenzie, Joe Bagshaw, and Dick Pollock will meet in the next week to develop a Mission Statement and model resolution language. A target is to have petitions ready before the end of December, which would give us a month to get the required signatures. We will need coordinators for each town we intend to get articles on the Town's warrant.
