As announced on Bill Still’s Still Report, Ellen Brown will be running for the position of Treasurer in California.
The good news is that the position is elected by the people, instead of being appointed by the legislature or any executive.
The Treasurer has a $75 billion investment fund, where some funds could be moved into a public bank.
Even if she doesn’t get elected, from my experience of following politics closely for over two decades, putting her name on the ballot raises awareness and gives her more attention and credibility in a subsequent election when there is more demand for positive change.
Instead of just sitting around and complaining or instilling people with hopelessness, Ellen Brown is directly engaging the public through the political process.
