We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we have received in the last few weeks. To all who responded so generously to our recent appeals for a year-end gift in the support of the Democracy Campaign’s work, thank you. We deeply appreciate your vote of confidence.
If you haven’t done so yet, there is still one more day after today to help us finish the year on a high note and get a tax deduction for this year.
Please let us know our work is important to you by making a tax deductible year-end charitable gift to the Democracy Campaign.
As we usher in the new year, the threats to democracy and the challenges facing Wisconsin’s citizenry have never been greater. We have our work cut out for us as we continue working to keep government as clean, open and honest as possible and fighting for reforms that make people matter more than money in politics.
In 2012 we will do what we have done for more than 15 years now, and then some. We will expose wrongdoing and corrupt activity whenever and whereever we find it, and take action to set things right. Just like we did last week when we filed complaints alleging judicial misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman with the state Judicial Commission and Government Accountability Board.
We will keep shining light on the fact that elections in Wisconsin are being bankrolled by an elite cadre of wealthy donors who make up less than 1% of the state’s population and we will push new approaches to reform enabling the 99% to get authentic representation in our government. Earlier this year we put forward a groundbreaking plan called “Ending Wealthfare” featuring a combination of policies that would have “extraordinarily powerful effects” according to an analysis by the national Campaign Finance Institute. There’s more where that came from.
All of us at the Democracy Campaign hope we can count on your support, and hope you will now consider making a year-end gift to help us hit the ground running in 2012.Happy new year. It’s going to be a doozy.
