Akron City Council Increases Campaign Contribution Limits
On Monday, December 15, Akron City Council voted 8-4 to raise campaign contribution limits for mayoral and council candidates. All limits will increase by $100.
Candidates for mayor and at-large council will be permitted to accept $750 per election and ward council candidates will be permitted to accept $500 per election. The city charter requires council to review the contribution limits every two years.
The new limits come just in time for next year’s election as all council seats as well as the mayoral seat will be on the ballot.
