Do you believe some judges are influenced by campaign contributions? Do you think there is a need to improve the judicial system’s independence? Should judicial campaigns be publicly funded?

These questions can be answered at a Town Hall Meeting sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus. Free and open to the public, the community forum will be Mar. 26 from 7-9 pm at the Jewish Community Center.

Speakers include The Honorable Kim Browne, Judge for Franklin County Common Pleas Court, Domestic/Juvenile Division, and Scott Sturges of McNamara & McNamara LLP.

The Town Hall Meeting is also sponsored by imPACT (Political Accountability for Citizens Today), an initiative of the League of Women Voters of Ohio Education Fund with grants from The Joyce Foundation, The Kettering Fund, and the League of Women Voters of the United States Education Fund, in association with the the Midwest Democracy Network. The event is cosponsored by Common Cause and Ohio Citizen Action.

What imPACT can you have? Come on Mar. 26 and see!
