The impact of the huge amounts of money donated to political campaigns on the elections themselves as well as on policy and legislation will be the subject of a forum on Monday, November 9, from 7-9 pm at First Presbyterian Church in Lake Forest. Four panelists will give their perspectives on how and to what degree money influences the political and legislative processes:
- Illinois 58th District Rep. Scott Drury
- David Melton, Executive Director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform
- Benjamin Singer, Campaign Manager of Mayday US, a crowd-funded Super PAC working to elect candidates who support campaign finance reform
- Mary Schaafsma, Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of Illinois
