Cleveland City Council voted Monday, February 8, to increase campaign contribution limits for mayoral and council candidates.
After much debate, the Finance Committee agreed on a $5,000 annual limit from individuals and a $7,500 annual limit from political action committees giving to mayoral candidates. Individual contributions to council candidates were capped at $1,500 annually, with PAC contributions limited to $3,000.
The ordinance passed with three council members voting against it.
