MAINE CLEAN ELECTIONS
Click on the link here if you would like to make an on-line Clean Election donation on behalf of Walter Riseman, Candidate for House. This is a secure State of Maine website.
On November 3, 2015 Mainers voted to restore Clean Elections and to reduce the influence of money in politics in a landslide victory.
What this accomplished was to allow everyday Maine citizens to run a credible campaign for office. Under the provisions of the law, Clean Election candidates are not allowed to accept campaign donations from Political Action Committees or corporations, only registered voters residing in the candidates district may make donations. Additionally contributions on behalf of the candidate are limited to $5 per individual.
Assuming the candidate can meet the threshold of individual contributions of 60 individual $5 donations, then he or she will then become eligible for matching funds from Clean Election Fund. This is a critical component of financing an election bid.
This is where your help now is absolutely necessary to make me competitive in upcoming election. I need to raise at least 60 of these $5 donations. Please consider donating today.
