Dear Sir/Madams,

No matter which political party you may ascribe to, or none at all, I urge you to carry forward the message of public funding for elections. If you feel it in your heart the time is NOW. In the very red Arizona, we passed public funding over ten years ago; it is an ideal whose time has come.

To those that support OWS, I hope that you will do all you can to help those who do support public funding, and all you can to defeat those who oppose it.

The public financing idea is good - but as long as david & charles can throw $50,000,000 into a state election, doesn't this just drown the public funding?
