"500 Donors By June 30th" | Michelle Nunn for Senate | 06/27/14

"500 Donors By June 30th" | Michelle Nunn for Senate | 06/27/14 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it
I'm running for Senate because I've seen firsthand the power of citizens to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of those around them. We need to put our faith in the power of individuals to join together to address our problems.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:
Michelle Nunn... "We already know we’re going to be outspent by right-wing Super PACs and special interests with deep pockets. The only way we’ll win is with the support of grassroots activists like you. That’s why we’ve set a goal of 500 donors by our filing deadline. Help us meet our goal—contribute today."

"Franklin Delano Williams's pledge page" | MayDay.us | 06/06/14 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it
Our democracy needs an upgrade.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

......."I recently joined Lessig's citizen-funded MAYDAY.US campaign, an ambitious experiment to win a Congress committed to ending corruption in 2016, and we did something amazing: We raised $1 million dollars in 12 days. That's a ton of money, but it's not enough.

We're raising $5 million more by July 4, and I'm writing to my friends and family to ask if you can help us get the rest of the way there. If all of us who have supported the campaign so far each recruit just five matching pledges, we'd easily hit that goal. But I'd like to see if I can recruit ten of my friends to donate. So my question is: will you be one of those ten?"  ------ FDW

"Send Gov. Nathan Deal his pink slip" : Better Georgia | BetterGeorgia.org | 04/23/14

"Send Gov. Nathan Deal his pink slip" : Better Georgia | BetterGeorgia.org | 04/23/14 | Politics From My Point Of View | Scoop.it

If you had Gov. Deal’s job performance, would you still have your job?


Gov. Deal’s short-sighted changes to the lottery-funded HOPE program nearly destroyed the state’s best pipeline for highly skilled jobs.
When Gov. Deal changed the HOPE funding, he made it impossible for thousands of Georgians to be trained for highly skilled jobs – jobs that are going unfilled today – and he tore down the bridge that leads out of poverty and to the middle class.


Gov. Deal’s stubborn, partisan refusal to expand Medicaid leaves thousands of the poorest Georgians uninsured. And, on top of that, his decision threatens the bottom lines of hospitals that were counting on new income from the changes.


Gov. Deal’s budget has underfunded schools every single year he’s been in office. Since 2010, Georgia spent $1 billion less on public education each year than the state’s own formula says schools need.
Gov. Deal is the worst governor for Georgia’s middle class this state has ever seen.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

.......Better Georgia shares this Gov. Deal Pink Slip Petition: Are you one of the 70 percent of Georgians opposed to the "guns everywhere" bill that Gov. Deal is signing into law today? Let send Gov. Deal his pink slip in November!
