Campaign Finance Reform

I feel like Iā€™m going into a street fight with one arm tied behind my back.
— This is an actual quote from a current city councilor running for re-election without big-money backing of large developers

Too many of our City Councilors and Candidates take massive amounts of money from for-profit corporate entities, many located outside of Cambridge, with business pending before the city.  A few candidates even take money directly from owners of businesses with lucrative city contracts.  These financial conflicts of interest undermine the legitimacy of our democratic process.  Protecting the integrity of our democracy must be our highest priority.
