Mary Lou Finley — Peace and Freedom Party candidate for Controller 2018

Mary Lou Finley is a veteran anti-war, indigenous rights, and anti-police brutality organizer. She has previously campaigned for the Board of Equalization twice, in 2006 and 2010, for the Peace & Freedom Party.

What is the Peace & Freedom Party?

The Peace & Freedom Party was founded in 1967 for socialist and left-wing candidates to campaign on issues the two main corporate parties either oppose or pay lip service to. A longstanding advocate for socialism, anti-racism, feminism, and ecology movements, the Peace & Freedom Party remains California’s only left-wing electoral option for those seeking to build a better world.

Ballot Access is Not Cheap!

California’s undemocratic election regulations make it very difficult for independant and third party candidates to run for state office. For a candidate to even get access to the ballot they need to either gather 7,000 signatures within a short time frame, pay a $3,122.86 filing fee, or submit a combination of signatures and money.

This election cycle, the regulations changed. The allotted period of time for gathering petition signatures was moved up to mid-December from early January. Due to the difficulty of obtaining signatures during the holiday period when many people are busy and travelling, this change effectively shaved off two weeks of time for gathering the required signatures. While the corporate-supported Republican and Democratic candidates have no trouble filing the over $3,000 fee for Controller, that is a lot of money for someone on a fixed income!

Volunteers are hitting the streets and gathering signatures for Mary Lou’s grassroots campaign, but with your help we can raise funds towards the filing fee and running an independent campaign calling for taxing the rich to provide jobs, housing and healthcare for all!
