John Rauh: Money is Crippling Our Democracy. Is The Problem Too Big To Fix?
Start Date: 4/10/2012Start Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
John Rauh is a leading voice on election reform and founder of Americans for Campaign Reform (2003). He has been an advocate for voluntary public funding of congressional and presidential elections and has spoken extensively on behalf of campaign finance reform in public, the press, and on Capitol Hill. Rauh will address how money has crippled the democracy and what he believes needs to be done.

He will then join Saint Anselm College politics students' Lyndsay Robinson '14, and John Pearson '14, for a panel discussion on campaign finance reform, Super PACs, and lobbyist influence at both  state and federal levels.

Rauh joined Clopay Corporation in 1961, and served CEO from 1975 to 1985. He also served as President of Cincinnati, Ohio’s independent political party, the Charter Committee, from 1969 to 1975. In 1992, Rauh was also the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate from New Hampshire. He has served as a board member of Common Cause and has been active on the boards of numerous civic and educational organizations, including chairing the board of the Children’s Alliance of New Hampshire. Rauh received his AB and MBA degrees from Harvard University, and was a fellow at the Kennedy School of Government.

Americans for Campaign Reform (ACR) is based in Concord, NH, and is a bi-partisan organization committed to the enactment of voluntary public funding of all federal elections.
