The Nation's Katrina Vanden Heuvel Congratulates FairVote's 'Sweet Victories'

FairVote got a very flattering shout-out from Nation editor Katrina Vanden Heuvel in her blog today. Touting the recent reform victories in Rhode Island this week, as the state legislature overrode two vetoes of FairVote-initiated measures, Vanden Heuvel writes: 

One group that deserves far more attention for the work it has done day in, day out, for nearly twenty years, is FairVote, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that makes real the mantra "respect, include, and empower every voice and every vote." . . . Kudos to FairVote on its continued success--I'm confident many more victories lie ahead.

We think she's right, and we're really glad that there are those who recognize that for real change to occur in our political system, we have to rethink the mechanisms that make it function.
