Recognition

National Anti-Corruption Awardee

Ted was awarded one of two national Anti-Corruption Awards for his work attempts to reduce hyper-partisanship in federal and state elections. Ted wrote the initial draft of the Arizona Top 2 Primary  (Open Elections/Open Government) Initiative. Dark money from the Koch brothers defeated the Initiative at the ballot box, but its embers smolder.

The award was made by the New York Independent Parties.
