Changing How Political Campaigns Are Funded

By Susan Lerner, Exec. Dir., Calif. Clean Money Campaign

It's time to change the way campaigns for city office are financed. Only full public funding of elections will break the link between special-interest dollars and elected officials, as is done so successfully in the "clean money" public-financing systems in Arizona and Maine. The California Clean Money Campaign has concentrated its efforts on bringing the clean money system to state races, as AB 2949, pending in the state Assembly, would do. But the federal investigations of contracts given to political donors at City Hall make clear that L.A. needs clean money just as desperately.
