Letter to the editor: Democracy makes progress with votes
Placeholder Image
From Bill Holland Monroe To the editor: Following the disastrous Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, in 2010, U.S. citizens recognized democracy was under threat. These citizens mobilized local efforts nationwide, to take back democracy from "Big Money." Since then 16 state legislatures have passed resolutions calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.
