Election financing
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

Congratulations to Representative Rick Nolan! I, with great hope, agree that your desire to institute “public financing” for elections is exciting!


The Supreme Court, in all its wisdom, opened up “Pandora’s Box” with its decision that corporations, and private funding, are the same as personal donations.

Those billions that they did “donate” surely could be used in a more humane way.
