Costantino Rozzo Chair: Socialist Party of New Jersey

The current campaign Funding System for New Jersey Gubernatorial Candidates should be eliminated. The system is unfair, undemocratic, and corrupt.
What should be supported in Public Elections where all candidates receive and equal share of funding, media exposure without editorializing or censorship.

The system doesn’t work and creates a winner take all economy for advantage candidates. This is unfair. While some candidates may have just two hundred dollars to work with, others will receive a jackpot after raising $300,000.

This also limits the appearances and campaign opportunities for the disadvantage candidates, while fostering more appearances and media opportunities for those who are winning the financial race.

As Financially disadvantages candidates do not get Fair and equitable treatment, they have no opportunities for outreach and exposure. It is like giving Goliath a chance to beat on David with more advantages, stacking the deck in the advantage candidate’s favor.

This system is a cheat to candidates with no out reach or resources. It deprives those already deprived.
This intended purpose of this system is inherently flawed and less than enlightened. By no means does this system been in placed with intent for a better Democracy. In fact in counter Democracy on every level.

Disallowing the people exposure to a candidate takes away freedom of choice, freedom of expression, and freedom to allow individuals to make up there own mind on their own accord.

This system should be repealed in behalf of Public Campaign funding for all candidates. It would foster a better Democracy and remove corruption and power brokering and allow fidelity to the citizen in a Government by the people and for the people.

Thank You
