Martin Honored For Commitment to Campaign Finance Openness

Rep. Grier Martin was one of a select few legislators honored today with Democracy NC’s “Sunshine Award.” Only 1 in 6 House members received the award, given for a “superior” commitment to openness in campaign finance disclosures. “The public is demanding a higher standard of ethical conduct and more accountability to voters rather than narrow self-interests. Disclosure helps shine a light on problems, but it takes the right mix of restrictions, incentives, enforcement and leadership to change the political culture,” said Bob Hall, Democracy NC’s executive director.
