Strengthening Democracy

A vibrant, inclusive democracy requires that the voices of the people come first, not special interests. For two decades, Kayse has been fighting to create a democracy where all Oregonians have their voices heard.

When special interests take over our democracy, the people lose. Big money in politics has led to policies that allow giant corporations to avoid paying their fair share and pollute our environment. This year, Kayse helped to pass Measure 107 for Fair and Honest Elections, amending Oregon’s constitution so we can limit money in politics. Now it’s time to get to work passing campaign finance regulations that put people in power and level the playing field for candidates, especially those who lack powerful or wealthy connections. 

We need to keep moving forward with innovative solutions to make sure every voice is heard, including how we regulate and fund elections, how we elect our public officials, and increasing access to the ballot.
