President | Citizen's Coalition for Democratization
Scott Ferguson is a Marine Corps veteran and the founder and president of Citizen’s Coalition for Democratization, a non-partisan political reform organization focused on reducing the role of big money in our political system and promoting democratization in the United States generally.
