February membership meeting, featuring Rep. Chris Taylor

Madison's Chris Taylor, one of the Democratic stars in the Assembly, will join us for our February membership meeting. In this critical election year, she will explore the changing rules of the game, and the need for public disclosure of the special interests now pulling strings behind the scenes.

We will also have short presentations from representatives from the presidential campaigns, followed by a straw poll, which you won't want to miss. And we will vote on endorsements for candidates in the spring election. 

We know that parents of young children can't always make the meetings, so we will provide babysitting for this meeting. To give us a sense of how many kids will be coming, please RSVP at this link. If babysitting is popular we will try to provide it for meetings going forward.

When: 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10
Where: Concourse Hotel, 1 W. Dayton St., Madison
