Yesterday’s kick-off meeting was a success. We had several people there interested in our cause and have a few more that are willing to help out who couldn’t make it.
For a review, here are some of the things that were discussed at the Feb. 4 meeting:
- The problem of money in politics and how it has an effect on every other political issue we consider important today
- The upcoming Wisconsin State Supreme Court elections – money and fundraising will play a major role in a branch of government that’s supposed to be distanced from politics
- How public financing would work in an election with many candidates
- How can we make the issue of money in politics into the main stream?
We’ll be making voter guides for the upcoming local elections. Lisa will be sending out a survey to the county executive candidates, while Steve will be doing the city council candidates.
The next meeting will be Wed, Feb. 11 @ 4:30 p.m. in Reeve 213.
