I am continually concerned about the implications of Citizens United not only for the tremendous influence of special interest money but also because of the access of low to moderate income candidates in successfully running a race. Accessibility breeds equity but with the current system of campaign finance, special interests hold more sway in politics than citizens. In our current environment when there is a very real possibility of an expansion of Citizens United, it is all the more essential to reign in the system as every level possible.

I believe that Supreme Court rulings have diluted the value of each individual citizen's vote by promoting the concept that a corporation or PAC has the same constitutional right to political involvement as a citizen. In addition, wealthier Americans and special interest groups sway the democratic process away from representation of the people towards plutocracy. I am in full support of an Article V Convention to uphold the basic principle of "one person, one vote".

I support the ideas behind this initiative but have serious concerns about calling for a constitutional convention and our ability to control the topics discussed. If the options for expressing our concern with Citizens United is this or nothing I will probably with some reluctance support this approach. Although the options above say "will" my final vote on any legislation is contingent on the bill or resolution language itself.
