I’ll be testifying on this bill today.
Please help me by submitting written testimony sometime between now and 1:30pm tomorrow (Wed).
So you have 24 more hours to submit your written testimony.
Here’s how to do that:
STEP 1: Click here
STEP 2: Click on Submitting Written Testimony to a Committee (it’s on the right side of the page)
STEP 3: Click on SENATE
STEP 4: Under committee, click on it and go to the bottom and mark “State Government & Elections”
STEP 5: Under Meetings, select: 01/24/23, 1:30pm
STEP 6: Click on the dot to the left of “SB 5284 Campaign Finance Disclosure”
STEP 7: Click on the bottom one: I would like to submit written testimony
STEP 8: Provide the requested information on the form.
STEP 9: Copy and paste the following into the “Written Testimony” area (or you can type in your own comments on this horrible bill).
Senate Bill 5284 RADICALLY increases the workload for campaign treasurers, forcing all campaigns, including small ones, to hire an extremely expensive professional treasurer to handle the huge increase in workload required by this bill. Small campaigns can’t afford such a RADICAL cost increase. I urge you to MODIFY this bill and REMOVE the massive increase in workload for campaign treasurers so that volunteer treasurers are still possible.
Or you can copy & paste some or all of this (click here for the top 6 reasons they need to fix Senate Bill 5284).
I want to thank everyone who helps me with this. We want small campaigns (candidates running in local races, local initiatives or referendums, small campaigns on all sorts of local issues) to be able to exist without being forced to hire a costly professional treasurer.
Please submit your written testimony RIGHT AWAY (at the latest, submit it before tomorrow — Wed, Jan 24, 1:30pm)
Is it any wonder that Bully Bob Ferguson is trying so hard to impose a lifetime ban on all my future political activity?
I really need your help to survive Bully Bob Ferguson’s investigation / litigation / persecution of me and my family.
The only reason we’re still here is thanks to the heartfelt prayers and generous support from friends like you.
Please donate to my legal defense fund today (see below).
Last August, when the AG took my house and drained all my bank accounts (I was allowed to keep $1500), things for me and my family shifted from REALLY WANTING help to DESPERATELY NEEDING help.
I urge you to help me survive this political persecution by donating to my legal defense fund so that Richard Sanders can get the AG’s ridiculously unconstitutional ruling overturned so this never happens to anyone else.
With your help, I will keep fighting for the people across our nation with initiatives, lawsuits, lobbying, and helping elect more freedom-loving elected officials.
I love you all.
