We now have a speaker / expert signed up for our next meetup! (thanks Peg for the help!)
Bill Bozarth, Former Executive Director of Common Cause Georgia, will talk about the electoral college, what is it, how did it come about, why is it important, how does it work, EC vs. the popular vote, redistricting, and more. He'll then join us for our usual discussion.
What is Common Cause? http://www.commoncause.org/
Common Cause Georgia is a non-profit, non-partisan citizens' lobby organization. We believe that by banding together, citizens can make a difference. We throw a spotlight on issues that affect all Georgians. We work to strengthen public participation and to ensure that the political process serves the public interest, rather than the special interests.
Our purpose is clear: make public officials and public institutions accountable and responsive to citizens. Common Cause Georgia has more than 3,000 members and supporters across the state.
