League of Women voters to hold campaign finance event

The League of Women Voters of Manatee County on Monday will sponsor a talk on campaign finance reform.

The guest speaker will be Ben Wilcox, former executive director of Common Cause of Florida. He will discuss
 the latest changes to the rules, the impacts they will have on state and federal elections, and how the system should be changed, according to the release.

The program will held from noon to 1 p.m.  at the Unitarian Fellowship Hall, 322 15th St. W., Bradenton.,  The program is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

A brown bag lunch will take place from 11:30 am to noon. The program will be rebroadcast on METV. For more information, call (941) 729-9248.
