Rishi wants to crush Big Money in politics

  • Big Money in politics is subverting the interest of the American people. It is time for change! We can't change a corrupt system by taking its money.
  • My run is about Ethics-in-Politics: I refuse PAC and Special Interest Group money. I will never change my stance on this. From day one, I’ve said what every elected leader in America needs to say: no corporate PAC money, no special interest group money. Because our democracy is best when it’s responsive to YOU, the American people. I will always fight for the people.

I will push to end Citizens United

Join me in eliminating Citizens United and delivering a new people-centric value system for the American people? We must eliminate the Citizens United loopholes that allow millions of dollars into campaigns and sway elections. We need to level the playing field for the people-centric agenda that our country desperately needs.

There is no argument: we need to overturn the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision today! Our democracy is undermined by the ability of special interests who buy politicians and elections by spending hundreds of millions of dollars in support of the candidates of their choice.

Rishi fights for the people

On the city council, I have consistently rejected land-developer money. It made it easier for me to respond to the people's challenges without any undue influences. I believe in making fearless people-centric choices to address the top challenges of my community. As an elected leader, I challenged an investor-owned water utility company and am still pushing back on their rampant rate increases. My efforts have been successful. You can find a summary at https://rishikumar.com/water.

I will fight for the issues important to our families and our neighbors, not the special interest groups with agendas that do not align with the people. We need to level the playing field for people-centric policies that our country desperately needs to address America’s downhill slide.

I would be honored to have your vote, today or by November 8th I will serve with integrity – there is no other way for me.
