A big win for clean money in Montgomery County, Maryland
Earlier this week, the Montgomery County, MD Council unanimously passed legislation creating a small donor matching system for county council and county executive elections.
The details of the new funding system are spelled out here, but the key elements are that candidates for local county offices in Montgomery County, Maryland who refuse campaign contributions from PACs, corporations, and unions, can receive public funds that match small donations from individuals. For example, a $25 contribution will be matched with $150, for a total of $175 for the campaign.
This kind of system can help level the playing field for candidates who refuse PAC money.
