Like millions of Americans, we are concerned about the unprecedented sums being contributed to political campaigns by a small number of powerful donors. The result of this perceived and real financial influence on government is the undermining of public confidence in our democracy.
Our goals are simple. Runclean.org:
RunClean.org provides a new model that allows candidates to run for office with dramatically less money than in the current environment. Here is how it works.
By committing to explicit fundraising caps, candidates can inform voters through the RunClean.org web site and printed materials:
This is who I am.
This is where I stand on the issues.
This is what I will do.
Using well-organized, unbiased RunClean.org materials, voters can compare candidates’ self-provided qualifications and positions. In addition, voters can meet and assess the RunClean.org candidates through events organized with community partners.
RunClean.org does not endorse or oppose any candidates. We simply provide information and opportunities to meet candidates. We are able to provide this service through the generous donations of citizens who are concerned about the influence of big money on the democratic process.
