Community reacts to Supreme Court decision | LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor:
If you were in Winslow on Wednesday afternoon you would have seen and heard 15 people walking on Winslow Way and down to the ferry terminal to greet a ferry. They carried signs like “Get Money out of Politics” “Shame on the Supreme Court” “Citizens United and now McCutcheon” and shouted slogans like “Democracy Yes, McCutcheon No”.
It was a spontaneous reaction to Supreme Court 5-4 decision which allows individuals to effectively give unlimited funds to political candidates.
At the end of this expression of outrage Fran Korten gave them a short briefing on the implications of this decision of the Supreme Court.
