Founding FairVote backer and Cincinnati legend Harris Weston dies

The Cincinnati Post reports that catvHarris Weston has died at age 91. Harris was a wonderful friend to FairVote -- in 1992 he spoke at our founding conference in the offices of the Charter Committee that was traditionally the foundation of support for the choice voting form of proportional voting and was a key ally in narrowly defeated campaigns to restore it in 1991 and 2008. He was the co-author of the statutory language in both of those efforts and a man of gravitas and quiet good humor. He will be missed.
