Ethics Breach by Mayor's Campaign Is Alleged

By Robin Gilbert, North Hills

Even with campaign financing laws, there will always be attempts to funnel extralegal money to a candidate who is perceived as being potentially useful by a donor. The solution to this problem is a system of publicly financed campaigns where each candidate for a city office would receive the same amount of funds. Candidates would not have to go to wealthy donors for their campaign funds; the funds would come from the public.

Yes, the public would buy their politicians instead of the big donors. As an added bonus, our elected officials would not have to spend time raising campaign funds.

Instead, they would be getting to know their constituents. Isn't that the way it should be?
