Who Owns Democracy? A Forum on Money and Politics
South Carolina Political Collections, in partnership with the Association of Centers for the Study of Congress, The Kettering Foundation, and the National Issues Forums Institute, is hosting a series of public forums during 2011-2013. We invite you to join us January 23, 2012 for our forum Money and Politics: Who Owns Democracy?
The forum will be
held in the Hollings Special Collections Library. It will begin promptly
at 6:30 p.m. and last approximately two hours. Pizza and drinks
will be provided.
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to 803-777-0578 to reserve your seat.
SCPC Director, will moderate the forum and lead discussion of this
issue. Many feel that the influence of big money in political campaigns
corrupts our system of government and results in the rich and powerful
receiving preferential treatment. During the forum, participants will
discuss campaign finance reform, restrictions on lobbyists, and other
receive a twenty-eight-page issue book prepared by The National Issues Forums Institute prior to the forum. The results of the forum will be aggregated with those of similar forums held
across the country and shared with leaders in our government.
If you represent a group that would like to participate, please call Herb Hartsook at 777-0577 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
