Onward and Forward, remarks from PA Clean Sweep efforts - as most voted YES

Onward and ForwardElection Day has come and gone, and although we didn't get the results we wanted, we have made some strides for change in Pennsylvania.

No more will retention elections be taken for granted. Instead of judges sailing through by 3-1, 4-1 and even 5-1 margins, we've narrowed the gap to 2-1. And there are some bright spots in the Commonwealth: In Lebanon County, a majority of voters saw fit to vote NO on all seven statewide appellate court judges. Dauphin County voters did the same.

We have made some inroads and friends in Philadelphia. More Philadelphians are subscribers to our PACleanSweep Alerts than ever before. Getting Philadelphia involved in state-level reform is critical to bringing honor, dignity and integrity back to Harrisburg.

Without our Vote NO campaign, would people still be talking about reform and the Constitution at all? Perhaps, but maybe it wouldn't be as far in the forefront. "
