A non-partisan effort to take the money out of politics is brewing in Door County. United to Amend-Door County is organizing an informational meeting January 31 to gather residents frustrated with the amount of money spent to influence elections. Dan Powers from United to Amend Door County says if people want to help change the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 decision to allow corporations and outside groups to donate large amounts of money to political campaigns, it has to start on a local level.
Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters, the informational meeting will start inside the Door County Library in Sturgeon Bay beginning at 4:30 p.m.
