Campaign Finance Reform
People Before Profits
Our political system favors the rich and the powerful. We have an opportunity here in Seattle to change that. Jon is participating in the new, publicly financed Democracy Voucher program. Our goal with this campaign is to demonstrate that publicly financed elections are effective in leveling the playing field and supporting grassroots candidates. We will always prioritize people over profits and communities over corporations.
Jon has taken a pledge not to accept any campaign contributions from corporations, developers or CEOs. Instead, 90% of our campaign's funding comes from Democracy Vouchers and our campaign's average real dollar donation is just $19. What's more: 95% of our donors live in Seattle. Because our campaign is financed by regular, working people, you know that Jon will always be accountable to you, not big money.
