Not surprised that the council doesn't like the idea of spending limits on campaigns. Since the big guys have ott budgets they can't see why the aspiring big guys can't too.
I for one think much too much money is spent on all types of American elections.

Any candidate can still limit their own expenditures and make an issue of it, if they like. Tend to agree this is a solution looking for a problem. Hey, City Council - got a few minutes to talk about street repairs????

Solutions looking for a problem is Cordell's hallmark of her tenure on the city council.
Glad to see that the vast majority of the council had the common sense to vote this down.
Now what issue can they move on to now, while avoiding infrastructure and other pressing matters?
