Greg Coleridge - Activist, Move To Amend

July 19, 2017

"The problem isn't that the government is broken," Greg Coleridge says, whipping out one of many activist slogans he's been repeating so long they're inextricably threaded into the fabric of his speech. "It's that it's fixed."  

"Fixed as in rigged," he says, leaning in, making sure the message is clear. Coleridge's central issue is corporate power and the insidious effects of money in politics. He is a man who has known that corporations aren't people since long before Citizens United.

Initiative Petition Appears Headed to Mentor Ballot

February 3, 2014

Mentor voters could see an initiative petition on the November ballot that takes issue with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling regarding the federal Campaign Reform Act.

A Mentor affiliate of a national coalition, Move to Amend, appears to have enough valid signatures to submit to electors a proposed ordinance instructing the city to inform federal and state elected officials that voters “want a constitutional amendment ending constitutional rights for corporations and overturning the legal doctrine of money being considered equivalent to speech,” the MTA website says.
