Clean Money Pledge
There is a growing disconnect between elected officials and the communities they represent. A large part of the blame lies with a campaign finance system that unfairly stacks the deck in favor of the few Americans able to give exceptionally large contributions. Citizens United and other court rulings have ruined decades of commonsense campaign finance laws. Now, just a handful of wealthy special interests control political funding, many times through large PACs and nonprofits that hide donors’ identities from the public.
In Congress, I will fight to reverse Citizens United. I will have an open door and be accessible to all of my constituents. I will come back to Orange County, and stay connected with the district. In addition, I have not and will not take money from the NRA/gun lobby, Big Pharma, Insurance or Big Oil companies. My constituents will be my only special interest.
