Congregation Albert Hosts Brotherhood Brunch & Discussion on Ethics Reform 10/15

From the Congregation Albert Bulletin:

Congregation Albert Brotherhood Brunch
Sunday, October 15, 10 AM, Social Hall
3800 Louisiana NE, Albuquerque 87110
Panel Discussion: Public Corruption and Ethics Reform
Drew McCandless, Special Agent, FBI; Matt Brix, Director, Common Cause New Mexico; Brad Winter, President, Albuquerque City Council.

We are beset almost daily with reports of public corruption that seem to result from New Mexico’s long standing tradition of patronage politics. The Albuquerque Journal reports that New Mexico is one of only five states with no limit on campaign contributions. Giving gifts to New Mexico’s public officials is not banned or limited, which creates the potential for conflicts of interest. Clearly there is a need for public ethics reform at all levels of statewide government and within our public institutions.

Join us on October 15 to discuss this topic with Drew McCandless, Special Agent, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Matt Brix, Director of Common Cause New Mexico and Brad Winter, President of the Albuquerque City Council.

The cost is $8 for Brotherhood and Sisterhood members and $11 for others, including the general public. Please reserve by October 12 by calling 883-1818, ext. 3203, and leaving your name, phone number, and the number of reservations.

(Editor's Note: Thanks to Michelle Meaders for sending this along, as she does with info on so many other excellent events.)
