Today, millions of Americans will begrudgingly pay their taxes to a government that does not inspire confidence. With public trust in government at near historic lows, many Americans believe that their elected representatives don't care what the average citizen thinks. Unfortunately, they're right. But there is room for hope. More than a dozen new city and statewide anti-corruption campaigns are on the way in 2015 and 2016. There are more than 23,000 municipalities and 27 states where we can bypass entrenched local legislatures and put tough, new anti-corruption laws on the ballot, so citizens can vote on them directly, which means this movement isn't slowing down anytime soon.
