Brown bag on Election Reform and Citizens United

Join us for a Brown Bag Lunch
on Tuesday, July 10th, 2012
State Library of Massachusetts
Room 442, State House
12 until 1:30 PM

Bring your lunch and join us to hear Pam Wilmot talk about the Citizens United vs. FEC decision. She will speak on its impact on politics, and what is being done to address it and will also talk about other current election reform issues such as National Popular Vote for President and the election laws bill pending before the Massachusetts Senate. Come hear the latest news and ask your own questions about money in politics, election reform, or government transparency.

Ms. Wilmot is executive director of the Massachusetts chapter of Common Cause, a national non-partisan organization that lobbies for an open and accountable government and democratic election procedures. She has been an advocate for government reform and consumer and environmental issues for 30 years.
