** Free and Open to the Public -- Light Refreshments will be Served **

Please come join in the discussion and learn more about:
  • Campaign finance reform and why it is needed - or not
  • Public Financing – welfare for politicians? Or is it needed to make politicians beholden to citizens, not special interest groups?
  • The disclosure and regulation of interest-group “phony issue ads” and other “outside” spending - is this necessary or would it stifle “free speech”?
  • The new “Impartial Justice” Law and the lawsuits against it
  • The need for redistricting reform in Wisconsin – why and how do we do it?
  • Implications of the January 21st, 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision on corporate and union money in politics
