Former Assemblywoman Sally Lieber will speak in support of campaign finance reform in an event this weekend sponsored by the local chapter of the League of Women Voters and the California Clean Money Campaign.
The program will focus specifically on the California Fair Elections Act, a legislative initiative appearing on the June 2010 ballot. The act would approve voluntary public funding for political candidates for Secretary of State in the 2014 and 2018 elections.
Lieber, who was a Mountain View council member and mayor before representing the state's 22nd District, will share her personal experiences with campaign finance. Nancy Neff will speak on behalf of the California Clean Money Campaign.
The event is Sunday, Oct. 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the private home of Don and Alice Loughry, located at 92 Sunkist Lane, Los Altos. For more information, visit www.lwvlamv.org.
