Fall: OathSpending

Leaders for a Better Community is a Milwaukee-based group that supports Democratic legislative candidates.  The group's agenda supports better schools, economic development and job creation, tougher gun laws and raising the minimum wage.  The organization is led by Sherwin Hughes, a political consultant and Milwaukee radio talk show host. 

The group recently reported spending nearly $31,100 on television, radio and newspaper advertising to support mostly Milwaukee-area Democratic candidates in numerous legislative races.

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board/Wisconsin Ethics Commission as an independent expenditure committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
