Money in Politics

Money can be corrosive to our politics. More than ever in Illinois history, the significant sums that are now needed to run for office limit the number of potential candidates, stifle diversity, and skew democratic debate towards the wealthy, party insiders, and special interests. The current system allows those with the most money to buy an outsized voice in our elections. To address these issues, Reform for Illinois supports:

  • Sensible campaign contribution limits.
  • Full public disclosure of all campaign donations and political spending so that voters know who might be influencing their representatives.
  • Other innovative mechanisms to limit the outsized role of wealthy interests and reduce barriers to running for public office, including the public funding of campaigns.
