Clean Money

By Eric Tang, Letter to the Editor

I literally punched the newspaper when I read the headline: "Wealth Gives Westly the Leg Up on Angelides" (March 23). As if money was the only thing that mattered in determining who our next governor should be. Whatever happened to character? To merits? To issues?

All seemingly washed away in an ever-escalating tide of campaign contributions. Things need to change. California needs clean money through full public funding of election campaigns. With clean money, candidates for office can spend their time out in the community listening to the needs and concerns of voters, instead of incessantly courting big money donors.
