PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Former Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader is scheduled to speak in Portland on a Multnomah County ballot measure that seeks to remove big money from politics.
He’ll speak at First Unitarian Church at 1211 SW Main St. from 6 to 7 p.m. on Saturday.
Admission is a suggested donation of $3 to $20, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Nader will speak on the Get Big Money Out of Politics effort in Multnomah County with Measure 26-184.
The ballot measure has three provisions to limit money in politics. If voters approve the measure, it’ll limit contributions to candidates from individuals and PACs to $500. It will also keep corporate money out of candidate races and limit independent expenditures. Measure 26-184 will also require that political advertisements disclose the real identity of their top 5 funders.
Following the presentation, Nader will host a question and answer session and book signing for his newest release: “Through Power: It’s Easier Than We Think.”
