Letter to the Editor

Put campaigns on line

Thank you for your editorial on "following the money" electronically (Opinion, May 31 and June 5). Easy access to campaign contribution information is not in the interests of some politicians who receive money from the NRA, tobacco interests, and other less popular special interest groups. It is a benefit to the citizens of this state to have this information easily accessible. As voters we need to promote legislation which will allow on-line campaign accounting. We need to know who is supporting our candidates.
