Initiative 4 is needed

 

I support the Spokane Valley Bill of Rights for Clean and Fair Elections (Initiative 4). It would simply ban corporate lobbyists from influencing elections by requiring communications between elected officials and corporations be done in an open forum.

I realize that corporations now have the same rights as people, but without the implementation of Initiative 4, it appears that corporations have a distinct advantage over people.
