Follow the Money (Guest: Simon Schuster)

Mark Brewer details the ballot proposal campaign he’s leading to award Michigan’s electoral votes to the national popular vote winner. The proposal, if approved by voters, would only become effective if states representing at least 270 electoral votes (a majority) were a part of the Electoral College Compact.

Then, the discussion shifts to money: campaign fundraising. Joining the discussion is Simon Schuster, executive director of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network.

Schuster was a reporter for the Michigan Information & Research Service and a freelance reporter for The Washington Post and The Detroit News. He earned his bachelor’s and Master of Public Policy degrees from Michigan State University, where he was a graduate policy fellow at the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research. Schuster has served on the boards of two Michigan non-profits, including serving as board president of MSU’s The State News.
