campaign finance reform

Reporting Local Campaign Finances

Well, if anyone was wondering why there is a noticeable void of good reporting on campaign finances in local elections… I have the answer.

The answer is pretty simple, but horribly boring.

The answer is a lack of uniformity in campaign finance report rules, a lack of money to throw around and a lack of technological advancement in local governments. More notably, the office-holder hopefuls who are filling out these forms (or are having their buddy/treasurer fill them out) are also fairly technologically challenged.

Public Forum on Voter-Owned Elections

What: Public Hearing, Chapel Hill Town Council
When: Monday, February 23, 7:00 p.m.
Why: Come support Voter Owned Elections Monday, February 23

On   July 16, 2007, the Town of Chapel Hill received authorization from the North Carolina General Assembly to establish a Voter Owned Elections (public financing) program for local municipal election campaigns. The Town is the first local government in North Carolina to have received this legislative authority. The State Board of Elections required some improvements to the town's proposed program, so Chapel Hill is having a second public hearing on Monday night. Town Council members invite public input and supporters of Voter Owned Elections should attend the public hearing.
