Alan Khazei on Government Reform
Alan Khazei said, "I pledged that I would not take a dime of PAC and lobbyist money because I believe special interests are polluting our politics and preventing meaningful change on the central issues facing our country, from health care reform to climate change, to creating jobs, tax fairness, energy independence, and more."
Khazei continued, "Today, I'm challenging all of my opponents to join me in taking a pledge to refuse money from PACs and lobbyists. If you have already taken it in this campaign for U.S. Senate, you should give it back. All of us who seek to serve the citizens of Massachusetts should only be beholden to the people, not to the special interests.
And that is why Alan is the only candidate in the race refusing to take PAC and lobbyist money. Alan only wishes to be beholden to the people and their interests.
