Akron City Council to Consider Raising Campaign Contribution Limits
The Akron City Council is considering legislation to increase campaign finance limits for mayoral and council candidates. Limits for mayor and at-large council candidates would increase to $750 and the limit for ward council candidates would increase to $500.
The council is waiting to take action on the legislation until after public hearings have been held. Hearings will take place at the Rules Committee meeting and at the regular council meeting later today.
The 10 ward council seats, the three at-large council seats, and the mayoral seat will all be on the 2015 election ballot.
