To: Apex Mayor Keith Weatherly and Apex Town Council Members

Apex, NC Citizens Against Citizens United

We, the undersigned, support passage of a local resolution stating that corporations are not people and are not owed the same rights and protections as people. Additionally, we recognize the threat to democracy posed by allowing private interests to spend boundless sums of money to influence elections.

Why is this important?

We encourage the Mayor and Town Council Members of Apex, NC to join with the 14 other North Carolina municipalities who have already moved to defend democracy by calling for a stop to anonymous or unlimited political donations and supporting a U.S. Constitutional amendment establishing that:

(1) Only human beings are people endowed with constitutional rights, not corporations or any other type of organization.
(2) Money is NOT speech and regulating political spending is necessary to preserve equitable and transparent democracy.
