(ANCHORAGE, AK) -- Today, End Citizens United (ECU), a national campaign finance reform organization founded by grassroots donors, announced their endorsement of Alyse Galvin, an Independent candidate running for Congress in the Alaska Democratic Primary.
“Every Alaskan wants more transparency around money in politics,” Alyse Galvin said. “In Congress, my constituents will know that as I consider legislation the number one thing on my my mind is how will this affect the people back home in Alaska. I’ve been hearing from Alaskans that they worry special interests have driven federal policy affecting our state lately and I can’t wait to change that. As Representative, I will be open and transparent in my finances, my communications and my decision-making so that Alaskans will always know that they come first.”
Galvin has pledged that she will not accept contributions from corporate PACs.
“The flood of unlimited and unregulated money in our elections has created a culture of corruption in Washington, and Alaskans are demanding reform,” said ECU President Tiffany Muller. “Alyse Galvin is a committed reformer running to represent Alaska -- not corporate special interests. We’re proud to endorse her and look forward to helping her win in November.”
Alyse Galvin is a mom, a lifelong Alaskan, a community leader, and a former small business owner. A tireless advocate for education, she spent the last five years as a leader of Great Alaska Schools organizing parents, students, educators, and community leaders to protect public schools from massive budget cuts. In 2017, she led statewide opposition to the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education.
The Alaska Democratic Primary is Tuesday, August 21, 2018. The winner of the primary will face incumbent Rep. Don Young in the general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
