Common Cause Hosts Forum On Campaign Finance Reform At Emory


Derek Bok, national chairman of Common Cause and former president of Harvard University (1971-91). All Georgia candidates for U.S. Congress have been invited.
WHAT: Campaign Finance Reform: Why We Can't Wait
WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1
WHERE: Winship Ballroom, Dobbs University Center, 605 Asbury Circle, Emory.
COST: Free and open to the public.

In a recent poll commissioned by Common Cause and the Emory University political science department, 86 percent of Georgians surveyed want some form of campaign finance reform. "So far the only candidate committed to attending is Green Party candidate Jeff Gates. What does that say about the candidates?" says Robert Pastor, professor of political science at Emory.

All the Georgia candidates for U.S. Congress have been invited to participate in the forum. Emory political science students are compiling videotaped interviews with the candidates and will distribute a handout on their positions on campaign finance reform, so that audience members can hear the positions of candidates who do not attend.

For more information on the event, call the Georgia Common Cause office at 404-250-6010. For information on attending a pre-forum dinner, send e-mail to For more information on Common Cause, go on-line to
