Local Bill For Cleaner Elections

Today’s WaPo editorial relates that Montgomery County, Md is considering a bill that would change their CFR. This stems from a growing concern that labor unions and developers have exercised undue influence in local elections.

A bill was proposed by then Council member Phil Andrews that would target the way elections are funded for County Executive and County Council. Individual contributions would be limited to $150. Any candidate that signed up for public matching funds would agree to reject contributions from special interest groups. Example given is that where a candidate collects $150k from 3k donors the county taxpayers would then kick in $900k in matching funds.

Mr. Andrews lost the last election for county executive and this may have put the bill in jeopardy. The bill has been put on the back burner until this fall.

Nothing was said in the article about enforcement. I would hope the bill makes it to law so we can kick the tires and check it out.
