Your editorial is right that politicians need to make a “commitment to govern better” as a step toward rebuilding the trust of voters (Rebuilding trust after a year of scandal: Editorial – Jan. 6).
Key, workable changes have been proposed in bills introduced by a few democratic politicians, or set out in detail in reports by groups like Democracy Watch.
All that is needed is for legislatures to listen to voters (finally) and make these proposals the law of the land, and then voters will have a good reason to trust governments again.
