Close the Gap California is hosting a really interesting and informative free online webinar series for anyone considering a run for office. See below for description. (Details for registration will show on the CTGCA website soon.)
We are impressed that they will have Ann Ravel as main speaker for the first webinar on March 8, “Dark Money. Clean Money. Can an Ethical Candidate Compete?” Ann Ravel is the former director of the Federal Elections Commission.
In 2017, Federal Elections Committee chair Ann Ravel resigned saying: “The mission of the FEC is essential to ensuring a fair electoral process. Yet, since the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, our political campaigns have been awash in unlimited, often dark, money.”
Ann Ravel is now a lecturer at Berkeley Law. kalw.org/post/former-fec-chair-ann-ravel-discusses-her-resignation-and-money-politics#stream/
