Some of the hottest issues surrounding the way Florida runs elections will be dissected Friday.
More than 40 speakers, including former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart and Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes are on tap for the event put on by the Miami-Dade Commission on Ethics & Public Trust and the St. Thomas University Center for Ethics.
They’ll consider campaign money in light of U.S. Supreme Court opinions lifting restrictions, voting rights, voting fraud, election investigations and “can nice candidates win?”
The conference is aimed at elected officials, campaign workers, political consultants, students or political junkies, said Joseph Centorino, executive director of the Commission on Ethics & Public Trust.
Cost is $90; $25 for students. Advance registration is required. Click here.
Attorneys who attend will get credit from the Florida Bar for eight hours of continuing legal education and three hours of ethics credits, Centorino said.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
