In June, the New Jersey Legislature passed a series of campaign finance reforms, including a clean elections pilot program. Governor McGreevey signed the much-touted reform package into law in late June - all but the clean elections law, which the governor's office stated was so important as to deserve its own signing ceremony. Yet, five weeks and several campaign donor scandals later, the bill (A1/S1) still languishes on the Governor's desk.
What's the deal Gov.? Considering the shabby patchwork of other reforms inked into law by your pen, clean elections may be the best shot your state has at truly democratic elections.
If you think the Governor needs your help to pick up that pen and sign the Clean Elections Pilot Program into law, you can drop him a line here.
