To The Daily Sun,
On Sunday, Jan. 18, LRCC SPEEKS, a student organization at, is sponsoring a presentation and discussion by Professor Lawrence Lessig at 4:30 p.m. in the Academic Commons building. All are invited.
Professor Lessig is participating in a 300-mile walk to educate the public and political candidates on the subject of reforming money in politics. The walkers will be coming through Laconia on Sunday the 18th.
Professor Lessig and other marchers are seeking to continue the work of the late New Hampshire reformer Doris "Granny D" Haddock, whose historic cross-country walk for campaign finance reform at the age of 90 helped spark a citizens movement to pass the McCain-Feingold Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002.
"The New Hampshire Rebellion cuts across party lines to champion fundamental reforms that are needed to save our state and our country," said former Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew Hemingway, a member of the N.H. Rebellion.
Hope to see you there.
