Founding FairVote backer and Cincinnati legend Harris Weston dies
The Cincinnati Post
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 Harris Weston2008.
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.
