Faced with the need to combat the wealthy Americans who control political arenas through big money, End Citizens United has put aside more than $4 million in the past three months of the year 2017. The PAC , also known as the political action committee is dedicated to amassing approximately $35 million towards the next elections that will be conducted in 2018. The raised amount would be helpful in the elections given that the End Citizens United used $25 million in 2016, during the just concluded presidential elections. It is vital to note that the 2016 elections were the first elections for End Citizens United to have participated in.
According to the president and executive director of End Citizens United, Tiffany Muller, more than 100,000 people have come forward to contribute to raising the stated amount in show of support. Tiffany said that in this year, 40,000 people had made their first contributions. According to the objectives of End Citizens United, this is an excellent additional number to the existing membership. End Citizens United is capitalizing on ensuring that the people elect candidates who hold closer finance reforms.
According to the members of End Citizens United, only the wealthy Americans have influence on the political landscape and policies reforms. Towards that, the team is planning to fight back through supporting one of their own. Mr. Jon Ossoff will run for Congress in 2018. In preparation for this, Ossoff has contributed more than $4 million towards to see him succeed in bagging the seat that was vacated by Tom Prince, who was nominated as the secretary of health and human services. Feeling undermined by the cabinet of President Donald Trump, End Citizens United is committed to ensuring that Ossoff wins come 2018.
Although the donors of End Citizens United have the allowance of donating approximately $5,000, the PAC has managed to amass more than the stated amount. This gesture had a positive impact in the 2016 general elections. During the elections, End Citizens United merged with other political groups to discourage two Republicans from the Senate not to vote. The result was a tie in the elections. This required a break of the tie by Vice President Pence. Betsy DeVos won the nomination. She is the current secretary for education.

Lori Senecal is Global CEO of CP+B (Crispin Porter + Bogusky}. Her appointment to this position was prompted by her incredible ability to use technology solutions to resolve business challenges. She is well known to be willing to step out of her comfort zone in order to achieve success.
Lori knew from high school on that she wanted to be in the business world. She loved gymnastics and starting coaching the sport in high school and continued while she was in college. Since gymnastics is an individual as well as a team sport she found that the coaching helped her to develop leadership skills and learn how to set goals and always be consistent. For more details visit her LinkedIn account.
When asked how she makes money, Lori said she made money when other people made money. Working in advertising definitely requires performance and perseverance to succeed. One of her strategies is to know everything about a business before they become a client. One of the toughest decisions in business is having to tell a teammate that their performance is not meeting the needs of the company.
Lori Senecal joined CP+B in 2015 and has had a strong impact in bringing the company forward. In 2016 Advertising Age (a magazine that delivers news and data on marketing) recognized CP+B as being among the “Creative Innovators of the Year” and Lori as one of only four “Agency Executives to Watch”. The company has acquired several coveted accounts. Hershey and PayPal are two of those clients.
A habit she believes makes her successful is approaching leadership with vision and follow through. This helps her focus on making ideas a reality.
A typical day for her starts with a workout, internal meetings with the leadership team and external meetings with clients to any pressing issues they may have so she keeps communication open always. Lori’s recent purchase of a Fit bit has really helped her to remember to get up and move around during her business day and get those steps in!
