“I welcome the opportunity to give more people a voice in the political process,” Coulson said. “I look forward to helping improve our campaign finance system.”
Coulson is a former member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the north suburban Chicago 17th District from 1997 to 2011. Coulson won election in the Chicago area despite running as a Republican, with President Obama winning more than 60 percent of the vote in her District.
As expressed on TBOR’s website, “We believe that the way in which we elect our officials is not a partisan issue; it is an American issue. …Our organization was formed and is run by individuals who understand the political process from the inside out, and are now seeking to educate people about the power they have to shape the process from the outside in. Our staff members have participated in elections of all shapes and sizes across this great nation.”
“We are thrilled to have Beth join our team in such a high-level capacity,” said TBOR Executive Director John Pudner. “’She has built a strong legacy as a fiscal-conservative.”
“What excites me the most about Beth is her dedication to the mission of Take Back Our Republic – to find solutions to encourage more of the hardworking citizens of America to have a voice in the political process and for those voices to be heard by their elected representatives.”
In the coming days, Take Back Our Republic will be making more major announcements regarding additions to the National Board of Advisors as well as the National Board of Directors.
Take Back Our Republic (www.takeback.org), or TBOR, is based near the campus of Auburn University just ninety minutes from the Atlanta airport. Our mission is to conduct research, analysis and public education on conservative ideas for improving the financing of campaigns for public office. One such idea is to incentivize small campaign donations from private citizens. TBOR believes that if more Americans have a voice, politicians will focus less on a handful of large check writers at corporations, unions or special interest groups who expect something in return for their contributions.
