- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
The FACT is that this program HAS DRAMATICALLY REDUCED campaign spending and therefore special interest influence in our local politics. Before VOE there were candidates raising a million dollars to run in the city of Portland. How can you possibly think that has no impact on how electeds make their decisions?
Even non VOE candidates have self imposed limits because of the social pressure VOE has created.
It's a tiny cost to help makes sure that they people making decisions on billion dollar budgets are neutral and accountable to voters.
