Dear Senator Brownsberger,
I hope you read my guest commentary in the Belmont Citizen Herald of last week regarding corruption of politics and the MaydayPAC. I would like to hear your thoughts. Thank you.
Nice job, Nayla. I like anything that will help elect candidates who really want to work for the people. I think the top practical priority is shedding light on the hidden money in politics. It’s a real shame that Congress still allows independent spending without full disclosure.
I’m personally ashamed that we haven’t passed a full disclosure law for independent spending in Massachusetts. I think we are very close to doing it — thought we’d be voting on it last week. But negotiations bogged down. I’m still hopeful that we’ll take it up in time to get across the goal line before July 31.
Thanks for your leadership on this!
