Cleveland Heights “Democracy Day” Public Hearing
Thursday, January 25, 2018, 7:00 pm
Cleveland Heights City Hall
40 Severance Circle, Cleveland Heights
Think there’s too much money in politics?
Does it seem that corporations have too much power?
In 2013, Cleveland Heights voters passed, with a 77% “yes” vote, Issue 32 in support of a Constitutional Amendment clearly stating that corporations do not have Constitutional rights, and money is not speech.
Issue 32 also established annual public hearings “to examine the impact on our City, our state and our nation of political influence by corporate entities and big money” in elections.
Cleveland Heights City Council will hold the 5th Annual Public Hearing on January 25 at 7:00 p.m. at Cleveland Heights City Hall “Members of the general public will be afforded the opportunity to speak on these matters for up to five minutes per person.”
Whether you wish to speak or just to listen, please plan to attend.
It’s your democracy!
January 21, 2018, is also the 8th Anniversary of the
Citizens United Supreme Court decision.
