Defeat 22 Coalition Announces New Partners Joining Effort
Growing list of supporters shows strong opposition to taxpayer funding of political campaigns
Sioux Falls, S.D. – The Defeat 22 Coalition, which opposes taxpayer funding of political campaigns, has announced six new partners joining the effort. The new coalition members are listed below.
“The Defeat 22 coalition is growing as more South Dakotans recognize that Measure 22 means taxpayer funding of elections,” explained Larry Rhoden, spokesman for the Defeat 22 coalition. “The proponents of this measure just don’t get it: we don’t want to be forced to fund robocalls and TV ads during dinner. South Dakota needs commonsense solutions, not some scheme to give away our tax dollars to politicians and their political campaigns.”
New Defeat 22 Coalition Members:
- Associated General Contractors of SD, Highway-Heavy-Utilities Chapter
- Associated General Contractors of SD, Building Chapter
- SD Land Improvement Contractors
- SD Agri-Business Association
- SD Grain and Feed Association
- Minnehaha County GOP
Defeat 22 is a coalition of South Dakota businesses, charities, and political organizations who agree that taxpayers shouldn’t fund political campaigns. Earlier this month they released multiple radio ads and mailers to supplement a grassroots door knocking effort. The coalition plans to continue heavy grassroots advocacy and paid media over the next three months. All details about the coalition-led effort can be seen at www.defeat22.com.
