ks100th 6

4 Jul

Marisa Smith, a designer who is helping create the website, is also working on developing the Facebook page and on setting up a second blog, one which will address issues affecting the Kansas 100th District. We will be meeting weekly, whenever we’re both available, in addition to my weekly meetings with Adam Friesen. Meanwhile, I am working on getting additional members for the campaign team.

Jane Byrnes, from We the People of Kansas, and I met with Mayor Carl Brewer and later with the city attorney in an effort to get some action on a proposed proclamation which would have the City of Wichita endorsing constitutional amendments to reverse the effects of the Supreme Court’s decision in the Citizens United vs. the Federal Election Commission case. The exponential increase in the amounts being expended on elections since the Citizens United decision is tending to make winning elections a matter of who can raise the most money rather than who is best suited to represent the voters, changing the United States from a democracy, government by the people, towards a plutocracy, government by the wealthy.
