Port Townsend council backs idea that corporations aren't people

March 6, 2012

PORT TOWNSEND — The Port Townsend City Council has voted unanimously to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would strike down the idea that corporations have the same rights as individual citizens.

“Corporations are not people and do not have the same rights,” said Jackie Aase during the comment period at Monday's council meeting.

“Your actions here will help the nation to get behind a well-written and effective constitutional amendment,” she said.

Steve Hamm said 1,200 signatures were gathered on a petition.
