The nonpartisan Move To Amend Rock River Affiliate group is petitioning in Watertown from now through Nov. 24 to get a question on the ballot for the April 7, 2015, election. The group is collecting signatures at Veterans Memorial Park, Riverside Park, around town and door-to-door. They will also be outside the polls during the Nov. 4 election asking for signatures.
Move to Amend is beginning a petition campaign in the City of Watertown on September 26 to gather signatures to place the question of a U.S. Constitutional Amendment on the Watertown ballot April 7, 2015.
The Move to Amend amendment basically states:
1. Only human beings, not corporations, unions, non-profits, or other such organizations are entitled to personhood rights, and
2. Money is not speech.
The Milwaukee County Board decided to let the voters have a voice on the subject of money in politics by overriding County Executive Abele's veto.
In November 2014, the County will be voting on whether there should be a U.S. Constitutional Amendment stating that money is not speech and a corporation is not entitled to Constitutional Rights. A yes vote will mean you want to reverse the narrow 5:4 Citizens United Decision by the Supreme Court, not change the Constitution, as some want us to believe.
