Cleveland City Council Raises Campaign Contribution Limits for Local Candidates
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.
