DC’s Fair Elections program exists because voters are sick and tired of council corruption (Op-Ed)

Candidate for DC City Council Ward 4, Janeese Lewis George, is participating in the city’s new public financing program for the 2020 cycle. George praises the system for its promise of allowing everyday people to run for office and diminishing the influence of special interests on government decisions. She recalls the words of one supporter, who gave her $5 and said, “I know it’s not much, but I’m a tipped worker and this is what I can afford. … I am so excited about your campaign. We need someone who cares about people like me.”
