U.S. House Candidate John Miglietta files federal Election Commission Report


John Miglietta, Green Party candidate for U.S. Congress (TN-05), filed his quarterly Federal Election Commission Report on Wednesday July 9, 2008.

Miglietta reported approximately $860 in contributions for the reporting period. These were all contributions from individual donors. The largest was $150. Miglietta and the Green Party believe in grassroots democracy. An important issue for John Miglietta’s campaign is electoral reform. He believes that corporate money must be taken out of politics.

Campaigns must focus on issues. Miglietta and the Green Party call for the public financing of elections and an end to corporate special interest funding of elections. Candidates should have equal access to the media and all candidates for an office should be included in all debates and public forums in order to give voters as broad of a choice as possible in an election.

On Tuesday July 15, 2008 John Miglietta participated with other candidates for federal, local, and state offices in a candidate forum sponsored by the Edgefield Neighborhood Association at the East Park Community Center in East Nashville. Those in attendance heard from each candidate individually and had the opportunity to ask questions. This was an ideal forum to allow voters to judge candidates for office and make an informed choice.
