Attend a House Meeting on Ethics Reform

Governor Deval Patrick’s Task Force on Public Integrity identified major gaps in the enforcement of state ethics and lobbying laws. In response, the Governor filed a legislative package in January aimed at addressing those gaps. The proposed legislation increases penalties for ethics and lobbying violations, among other key measures. For this package to pass, it must move within the next 45 days.

Please join us on Sunday, March 8, to discuss and strategize.
Executive Director Pam Wilmot, and Assistant Director Andrew Kingsley of Common Cause will brief us on the proposal. Common Cause is a non-partisan organization created to ensure open, honest, and accountable government at all levels; they are currently leading the fight for ethics reform in Massachusetts.

Come share your thoughts about what should be done to clean up politics on Beacon Hill. Check back for upcoming posts about Ethics Reform and what you can do to make your voices heard.
