“I’d just like to reiterate how strange it is,” Sundberg said. “Out on the street everyone thinks [campaign finance reform] is something that should happen. It seems unanimous.” But when the item came up on today’s agenda, Sundberg noted, there was exactly one member of the public present, along with three reporters.
“There is so much talk about it and so little action,” 2nd District Supervisor Estelle Fennell said. “I’m actually extremely proud of this board that we’re moving forward and we are moving towards campaign finance reform.”
Could these Supervisors be any more oblivious to their public image and reality?
Let’s break it down for these disconnected Supervisors. First of all your backers and supporters from the “development at any price community” are not going to show up, because they already have you in a super majority position. So they’re very happy with current fix.
The truth is that what most of us want campaign spending limits! Sadly that has been preempted by the Supreme Court ruling that money is speech.
