Tri-State Coordinator Pins Second Op-Ed in IBTimes

March 25, 2020

“I believe the simplest way to blunt the impact of transactional donations is to incentivize ordinary citizens to make small donations that can, in aggregate, compete with the money from transactional donors.

The tax credit would encourage small donors while making it possible for campaigns to win without the […]

Executive Director John Pudner On Why Instant Runoffs Will Save Money In Georgia

February 13, 2020

“Instant-runoff most importantly saves Georgia a ton of money. The local option wouldjust be saying the locality can use this instead of a traditional run-off if they want andrunning a run-off kills local budgets. For example, DeKalb County has to pay about$300,000 if they end up having to run a run-off. For Fulton County, it’s $1.1 million andfor Cobb County, it’s almost $300,000.

We truly believe […]
