Across the nation, concerned citizens of all political stripes are mobilizing in support of an action to

nullify the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. U.S. Election Commission.

This court case resulted in granting corporations and unions the right, under the guise of the First

Amendment freedom of speech, to provide unlimited, anonymous funds to political campaigns. Much

of this money is currently being used to buy partisan political ads through the broadcast media.

As a result the nation’s media have been inundated with huge amounts of cash, in effect

drowning out opposing points of view, a dire threat to our very existence as a democracy.

In a number of states, counties, and municipalities, resolutions have been introduced to garner

support for a constitutional remedy that would overturn the Citizens United decision.

Members of MoveOn, the Sullivan County, N.Y. affiliate of a national grassroots organization is

introducing a draft resolution to the Sullivan County Legislature at its next public session on Thursday,

June 21, 2:00 P.M. in the County Administration building in Monticello. The group is hoping that a

large public turnout will help convince legislators of the urgent need to adopt a overturn resolution in

order to restore democracy to the elective process. “We’re at a critical crossroads, and a strong

affirmation of our determination can turn back the threat of an undemocratic takeover of our public

institutions,” , Sullivan County, NY, MoveOn.
