NYC Council Member To Propose Campaign Finance Changes

In the Gotham Gazette,  Samar Khurshid reports “City Council Member Keith Powers, a former lobbyist who ran for election on a platform that included a 22-point electoral and government reform agenda, is introducing a package of legislation to make small but significant changes to the city’s campaign finance program.

Powers, a Manhattan Democrat, is proposing five bills, to be introduced at the next full meeting of the City Council, on Wednesday, that will change campaign finance thresholds and reporting requirements, with the goal of making running for elected office easier for first-time candidates and those with little access to wealthy donors.”
