26-184 limits big money in Multnomah County races
With big money interests dominating politics nationally, strong campaign finance laws are critical to protect the integrity of local elections — our elections.
Multnomah County is no stranger to flow of big money. In 2014, the race for County Commission Chair set a record, with the winning candidate spending $466,000. The future does not bode well, as Oregon is one of 6 states to place no limits on campaign contributions. Last year, the Center for Public Integrity ranked Oregon 49th worst in the nation in controlling “political financing,” beating only Mississippi.
Big money in politics weakens our democratic institutions, undermines confidence in government and excludes the vast majority of citizens from seeking public office.
