Campaign Finance Reform Comes To P.G.

Ron Schenk and Susan Goldbeck were against it.

The ordinance will limit contributions by individuals to $500. It will also prohibit candidates from accepting contributions from “non-individuals,” such as businesses and organizations, and require elected members of the council to recuse themselves from decisions that would provide “material financial effect” to campaign contributors who have given $250 or more.

The council adopted the ordinance on a 5-2 vote, with council members Ron Schenk and Susan Goldbeck opposing it. The two have voiced opposition to the ordinance since it was first introduced this summer.
