Election issues focus of discussion

As we are in the midst of a major election period, news coverage has included references to items such as reapportionment, gerrymandered legislative districts, voter ID requirements, changes in when and how people can vote, elimination of the Government Accountability Board, the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, John Doe law modifications, the influence of money in politics, amongst others.

If you wish to know more about these topics, and participate in a group discussion on them, your chance will come Thursday, Nov.3.

Co-presenters and facilitators will be the Rev. Fred Trost (former Wisconsin Conference UCC minister) and Cal Potter (former state legislator); they serve on the board of directors of Common Cause in Wisconsin. They will lead conversation at First Congregational Church of Christ (Lucas Hall), North Third Street and Bluff Avenue, Sheboygan, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Common Cause is a national bi-partisan, non-profit, watch-dog organization with state affiliates, dedicated to open, clean, and responsive government. Trost and Potter are part of the Wisconsin Board made up of both Republicans and Democrats, which has a state director with an office in Madison.

The evening will open with Trost and Potter giving short introductory remarks on the above government structure and operations issues, avoiding the examination of candidates and political parties. The floor will then be opened to comments and questions to foster discussion amongst those in attendance. In covering those issues, the impact of recent changes will focus on the quest to achieve full citizen involvement, confidence, and responsiveness in our democratic government and elective process.
