MONEY, POLITICS, AND BREAKFAST

From press materials furnished by the League of Women Voters of Greater Red Bank

The intersection of election politics and big money is an increasingly controversial topic — one that impacts every aspect of American life — and on Saturday, March 15, the League of Women Voters of Greater Red Bank (LWV-GRBA) invites the public to an informative forum designed to serve up some serious food for though, along with a delicious breakfast buffet.

Hosted at the Sheraton Hotel in Eatontown — located just off Route 35 at 6 Industrial Way East — the “Breakfast with the Board” event takes place from 10 am to 1 pm, and features guest speaker David Early, Counsel, Brennan Center for Justice.

Mr. Brennan will discuss the upcoming Supreme Court case of McCutcheon v. the Federal Election Commission, as well as the events leading up to it.  The court case is analogous to the famous Citizens’ United case, which ultimately enabled corporations to contribute to political campaigns without limit. This case argues the same for individual donors, who are currently capped at $48,600 per election cycle.

The cost for the buffet is $25, and non-members of LWV-GRBA are welcome. To register, contact Ellen Hock at (732)571-8757. Checks can be made payable to the LWV-GRBA, and sent to Ellen Hock at 580 Patten Ave, Unit 86, Long Branch, NJ 07740.
