Voter Right To Know Resource Page is a one stop shop for VRTK Signature Gatherers NOW

PLEASE HELP PASS THE Voters Right To Know Act - ballot measure

VRTK traces money back to original donors, not vaguely-named nonprofits. Each ad will clearly state which individual, corporation or union paid for the ad. It applies to funding greater than $50,000. It requires that political ads show the top 3 funders, in large white text on a black solid background so you can read it. VRTK requires that government contractor lobbyists register; today they fly under the radar.  VRTK restricts revolving door job offers for 2 years, the restriction is currently 1 year and VRTK reduces the gift limit from lobbyists & their clients to $200 from the current $250.  PLEASE HELP collect petition signatures. 
Information about VRTK

Contact Joe Ely at j.ely@comcast.net or 925-426-2412.
TVDC voted to endorse & support VRTK.
