    SIGN THE PLEDGE: Support Fair Elections in Berkeley

    More than half of campaign funds for Berkeley elections come from less than 1 percent of households. And seven of the last eight Berkeley City Council races were won by the individuals who raised the most money. This is a real problem. But this November 8, Berkeley residents have a historic opportunity to fight big money and special interest groups by voting yes on Measure X1. 

    Measure X1 would help make elections fair by restoring the power of small donors who live in Berkeley. Specifically, it would set up a system of public funding that would provide a $6 match for every $1 a candidate raises -- up to $120,000 for mayoral candidates and $40,000 for city council candidates. It is endorsed by former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich and the San Francisco Chronicle.

    But to make this possible, we need thousands of Berkeley residents to exercise their vote this Nov. 8 to get Big Money out of politics!

    Sign the pledge to vote YES for Measure X1 on November's ballot:

    "I will help fight to get Big Money out of Berkeley elections by voting YES on Measure X1 on the November 8 ballot."
