Sixty seven percent of Americans [2014 NBC poll] feel our U.S. Congress is not a representative body for the people. It is common knowledge that our congressmen and women spend the majority of their time raising political campaign funds. Our system of Washington D.C. representation has failed the citizens.
I am curious if our upcoming crop of potential or current city council persons seeking election will pledge to limit fundraising and expenditures to approximately $15,000. Without such a firm promise to limit fundraising, we may sacrifice our local government to the abyss of the political money pit. Laguna deserves the best in representation!
