Is Prop. 15 good campaign finance reform?

Does Proposition 15 offer a good model for campaign finance reform in California? On the next Your Call, we'll examine Proposition 15 on the June 8th ballot. The proposition would publicly fund just a small part of California's elections: the race for Secretary of State. Does it provide a good model for a broader public funding scheme? Are there better examples outside California?

Join us live at 11 or send us an email at What does the resistance to Prop. 15 say about the political hurdles for the introduction of any public funding to state campaigns? It's Your Call, with Sandip Roy and you.

I am a local volunteer in Palo Alto and we are finding that people at train stations and farmers markets are more receptive than they have ever been to any other issue! They are glad to take our flyers and they thank us for being there! (By the way we have never seen a local volunteer for No on 15.) People are often concerned about whether the system will work if you are up against a millionaire or swift-boat type attacks. Can you address this issue?
