Please come join in the discussion and learn more about:
  • The impact of the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Citizens United vs F.E.C on Wisconsin - good or bad?
  • Photo Voter ID and Same-Day Registration -- the case for and against each
  • Redistricting reform in Wisconsin – if necessary, how do we do it?
  • The disclosure of interest-group “phony issue ads” and other “outside” spending – is this necessary or would it stifle “free speech”?
  • Public Financing – welfare for politicians? Or is it needed to make politicians beholden to citizens, not special interest groups?
