Grier Honored for Bringing “Sunshine” to Politics

Rep. Grier Martin was one of a select group of legislators to receive Democracy NC’s “Sunshine Award” for campaign finance transparency.  Fewer than 15% of North Carolina legislators were honored for submitting campaign finance disclosures that promote openness.

“At a time of intense partisan wrangling, it’s great to see so many legislators across ideological and party lines who respect the public’s right to know how money flows during elections,” said Bob Hall, the executive director of Democracy NC, a  nonpartisan organization. “These lawmakers are role models for their colleagues in recognizing that campaigns and elections are public activities, not private affairs.”
