Money in politics


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
