I’m the only mayoral candidate who does not take money from corporations, developers, lobbyists, or professional associations. Not $2,500, or $500, or even $10. 

Why is this important? Because there’s too much corporate influence in our politics, at every level of government. It’s not just about direct campaign contributions, but also corporate PAC money. 

By refusing all corporate money, my campaign leaves tens of thousands of dollars on the table. My support comes from working people who feel that I will represent them, not a billion dollar company. And that’s something to be really proud of. 

Refusing corporate contributions communicates a clear value: corporate money does not have a place in making decisions for people. It’s about an allegiance to the people who work, live, and play in our city.
