The local Move to Amend affiliate for Ukiah, California.
After the victory of Measure F on November 6th, and the thank you notes mailed out to all of our donors, we have decided to take a rest for a few months before launching the next step. The next MTA-Ukiah meeting will be on Monday, February 11. 2013.
The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution at its August 27 meeting in Ukiah.
Their Resolution called for an amendment that said only human beings are endowed with Constitutional rights and that donations to political campaigns are not Free Speech and can be regulated.
This is a letter to the editor from Joy Gertler that was published in the Ukiah Daily Journal on Wednesday, August 28th.
An advisory measure aimed at ending corporate personhood appears to have been approved by Mendocino County voters.
The measure does not have the force of law but instructs local elected officials to pursue legislation to establish under law that only actual individuals have rights under the Constitution, and that corporations do not.
