Wayne Williams: What happened to truth, justice and the American Way? We walked away from it when we thought it was better to be a flag-waving corporation. Corporate greed now controls both parties.
Wayne Williams: Proposition 15 on the June ballot will change the way we finance election campaigns so politicians stay focused on the job we sent them to do! Prop 15 gets participating politicians out of the fund raising game and back to solving California’s problems.
