Needham is one of a select number of communities voting on the “Democracy Amendment” on November 6. This non-binding question is an opportunity for the community at large to weigh in on the question of corrupting power of unregulated corporate money in politics. The question reads:
Shall the state representative from this district be instructed to vote in favor of a resolution calling upon Congress to propose an amendment to the U.S. Constitution affirming that
(1)corporations are not entitled to the constitutional rights of human beings, and
(2) both Congress and the States may place limits on political contributions and political spending?
Vote YES on the Democracy Amendment on November 6!
