Campaign Finance Discussion Set for Jan. 31 at Sturgeon Bay Library

The community is invited to an educational discussion about campaign finance and efforts to reform the current law on Tuesday, Jan. 31, from 4:30-6:30 pm at the Door County Library in Sturgeon Bay, sponsored by the League of Women Voters. Citizens frustrated about the amount of money spent to influence recent elections have an opportunity to learn about United to Amend in Door County (DC-UTA), a local initiative working to change the campaign finance system. The “Citizens United” decision by the Supreme Court currently blocks any limitations on donations to candidates by outside organizations trying to influence elections. Dan Powers and Jim Black from DC-UTA will share with those gathered how unlimited contributions and influence became legal, how it weakens the citizen’s voice, and to offer a way to fight back. Guests are invited to enjoy light refreshments at 4:30 pm in the Jane Greene Room of the Door County Library. The program will begin at 5. Although the League of Women Voters does not have a position on this particular initiative, LWV has long been an advocate for campaign finance reform that allows all citizens to have an equal voice in their government.
