A regional official with good-government organization Common Cause will speak at the monthly meeting Thursday of the Auburn Area Democratic Club. Derek Crossman, Common Cause western regional states director, is slated to focus part of his talk on his group’s efforts to overturn a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on governmental limits on the amount of money corporations may spend to support political causes. The court ruled that corporations are “people” under the U.S. Constitution and cannot be subject to limits on funding amounts. The event is free and open to the public. It will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6 in the Auburn Library, 350 Nevada St., Auburn. - Journal Staff Report
