Tiffany Smiley Unveils “Agenda for Political Recovery and Reform”
Fourth in Series of Policy Rollouts Includes Town Hall Pledge, Term Limits and Ban on Taxpayer Funded Campaigns
Pasco, WA – Veterans advocate and U.S. Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley (R-WA) today unveiled her “Agenda for Political Recovery and Reform, “ the fourth in a series of policy proposals to give hope to Washington’s children and families.
The agenda focuses on holding politicians accountable and giving hope to voters who have lost confidence in the government’s ability to enact positive change in their lives and listen to voters. It includes a pledge from Smiley to hold 10 town hall meetings per year to be as accessible to as many Washington State voters as possible..
“Voters have lost trust in politicians and have lost confidence in government,” said Smiley. “And they have good reason to. Career politicians are always in it for themselves, government always throws up roadblocks to the people it serves, and party politics always gets in the way of what’s best for our country. Enough is enough.”
The full list of proposals in Smiley’s “Agenda for Political Recovery and Reform” including:
Enacting term limits for Members of Congress, because if a politician was elected before someone was born, they should not be on the ballot when that voter reaches voting age
Revoking the annual salary for Members of Congress if they cannot pass a budget for that year, because if every family at a kitchen table as to live within their means, so should government
Banning taxpayer funds from ever going to political campaigns
Pledging to hold 10 town hall meetings per year with each town hall held in a different county to ensure accessibility to as many voters throughout the state as possible
Ensuring efforts to increase voter participation do not undermine confidence in our elections by banning the federalization of elections and allowing states to implement voter ID and mail ballot signature verification laws
“Recovering trust and confidence in government means reforming the way politicians behave and finding ways to hold them to account,” Smiley continued. “This agenda ensures that hope is on the horizon for all voters who just want their representatives to be honest and find solutions to our problems.”
