Statement from the We the People coalition on the Elections Transparency Act:
“We are deeply dismayed by the so-called ‘Elections Transparency Act’ bill, which would effectively legalize corruption in New Jersey by rolling back important ethics protections and weakening the state’s independent elections watchdog.
“This effort has failed so far because advocates from across the state demanded that the bill be put on hold. But now we must make sure that the damaging provisions in this bill never reach the governor’s desk. If we want stronger elections and better state campaign finance and ethics laws, our elected officials must push for major changes to this bill – and ensure that any bill that moves forward works for the people of New Jersey, not shadowy special interests and wealthy donors.”
We the People is made up of labor, advocacy and grassroots groups that support an inclusive democracy.
