Oakland, California Has New Campaign Disclosure Tool
A new web tool is available to follow the money in November’s mayoral election race. The Open Disclosure project is the product of a partnership between the Public Ethics Commission and OpenOakland, a civic innovation organization.
The project displays campaign finance data for the 15 mayoral candidates in a user friendly way, allowing the public to quickly see who is contributing, where they are contributing from, and in what amounts. Developers hope to expand the contribution information to all elected races in Oakland.
The information is available here.
