Local Public Funding

Wednesday, March 10 
6 PM

Fair Elections Portland is working to establish a public funding system for school board, city council, and mayoral candidates, stemming the tide of big money’s influence and enabling more candidates to run competitive races.

What would clean elections look like in Portland? This webinar will cover the different approaches to policy, what has been done in other cities, and what would work in Portland.

Join the team from Fair Elections Portland to go over the recent oral arguments made about their case challenging the City of Portland’s 2019 decision to block their charter amendment proposal from the ballot. (The Court is likely to rule in the next few months.) We'll talk about what this means going forward for public funding in Portland, the implications for citizen initiatives, and direct democracy across Maine.
