The Long Beach Reform Coalition PAC is a local, non-partisan organization that promotes and supports public policies, laws, and candidates toward the goal of a transparent, accountable, and inclusive government.
NO on Measure BBB Campaign
Our first project is our unity coalition-based NO on Measure BBB campaign to defeat the deceptive amendment to expand term limits put on the ballot by the Long Beach City Council for the November 6, 2018 election. Affiliates of our coalition have authored and filed the official sample ballot argument in opposition to Measure BBB and we are building the NO campaign, as it rapidly growing in the consciousness of Long Beach voters, every day.
Our broad-based, non-partisan coalition unifies under one umbrella many diverse organizations and leaders who have served as City Hall watchdogs, defenders of neighborhoods, and champions of transparency and good government. The culmination of many years of grassroots advocacy, LBRC seeks to move community involvement in policymaking to the next level. By pooling our resources, not just in terms of fundraising but also people power and decades of local political and policy expertise, we intend to exert a coordinated impact on the Long Beach political landscape—one which the big money, narrow-focused special interest power centers, currently wielding outsized influence, cannot ignore. It is about time we began to even the playing field for the interests of average residents. That is our fundamental aim.
