Reject Oil Money

Do our lawmakers represent us, or do they represent oil companies?

Voters are fed up with lawmakers who side with Big Polluters. We’ve seen that lawmakers who accept large donations from oil companies and PACs are more likely to let us down on important issues.

Will those we elected protect our community and our families, or will they protect the profits of Big Polluters? Here’s how lawmakers can earn our trust: Fight for better laws – and stop taking oil money.

Sign your name immediately to tell lawmakers: You represent us, not big oil.

When lawmakers take oil money, they don’t stand up for regular people. With rare exception, the lawmakers backed by secretive PACs and oil companies are the ones who let us down most often. They stand in the way of critical climate legislation, and they’re the ones who make sure clean air and water proposals die in committee. But we elect legislators to stand up for communities and fight for our families, and we pay the price when they fail. Voters are fed up with the corrupting influence of oil money in politics, and we’re coming together to tell lawmakers it’s time for a change: Don’t take money from oil companies. Don’t go on trips paid for by oil companies. And most importantly: Back good legislation when it counts. When the going gets really tough – stay on our side, and lead.

    As we speak, we are literally cooking our planet and putting our coastline and homes, farms and businesses under water near our coasts. People and wildlife are suffering and dying needlessly for our failure to transition away from fossil fuels. I oppose all subsidies to 19th century fossil fuel industries. Candidates who take money from oil and gas companies, domestic or foreign, for their campaign will not have my vote. I urge you to represent the best interest of your constituents and do the right thing. I urge you to represent us and embrace clean 21st century renewable energy to slow climate change, improve health while lowering our annual healthcare costs, and grow good paying green energy jobs for our people. Our children’s future lies in your hands.
