Resolution to reverse Citizens United


June 20, 2012

MONTICELLO, NY — Members of the Sullivan County branch of the grassroots organization MoveOn will introduce a draft resolution to the Sullivan County Legislature’s public session on Thursday, June 21 at 2 p.m. in the County Administration building to nullify the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision known as “Citizens United,” which, combined with other recent Supreme Court rulings, has resulted in unlimited anonymous funding to political campaigns. Similar resolutions have already been introduced in a number of states, counties and municipalities. Call 845/292-4895.
