The Way It Is

The Way It Is | Dick Wirick, owner of Oxford Shop shoe store

Jean Welch Hill, Democratic candidate for the attorney general’s race, has made campaign-finance reform a major part of her platform. If elected, she says she wants to forbid candidates from using donations for personal use and limit election cycle donations from individuals and corporations to $10,000. City Weekly asked Dick Wirick, owner of the downtown Oxford Shop shoe store, his thoughts on Hill’s platform:

It would be better to cap at $10,000. Some of these big, big companies like EnergySolutions—I call it EnergyPollutions—they might give somebody half a million dollars because they want favors from somebody at the state Capitol. [A donation cap] would be good at $10,000. That’s a good, legitimate amount, and it doesn’t need to be more than that.
