Tired of candidates promising one thing only to do otherwise once in office?
We are and we have decided to do something about it!
Several recent campaigns have featured written "contracts" to
make campaign promises seem more binding. Voters responded enthusiastically
to this concept, however the lack of consequences for breaking those contracts
made them no better than other campaign promises. While a broken campaign
promise sometimes leads to a failed reelection attempt, what we really want
is a better means to compel an officeholder to keep their word.
Constituent Contracts for Candidates
A real contract -- with real consequences attached -- would give our
elected officials the tool they need to stand up to lobbyists
and other outside pressures and keep their word to their constituents.
This simple concept is what the Microtution Foundation is about.
With your support we can convince candidates that they can boost their
campaigns and also have an easier time serving in office by entering
into a real contract with the voters. The result will be better
representative government and, ultimately, a better country.
