Independent Expenditures


Containing and Declawing Independent Expenditure Committees

Independent expenditure committees will be approached with a genuine effort to enroll them into the program of The People Speak.  If such a committee is unresponsive and/or uncooperative, The People Speak will alert its Frontline Voters and the general public that their messages are not in alignment with this new citizen movement.  “This independent expenditure committee is operating out of integrity with the community’s strong desire for higher standards in local political campaigns.”

Furthermore, participating candidates and their campaigns will play a starring role in knocking down an attack piece that benefits them, that has been issued by an independent expenditure committee in support of their candidacy. An attack piece will be neutralized as The People Speak communicates with its base of Frontline Voters, the civic community, and the general public.
