Public Financing of Campaigns II

Posted by Warren Peterson on May 22, 2008

King County Councilmember Bob Ferguson held a town meeting last Monday on his proposal for public financing of campaigns. I was out of town but searched the Seattle Times and P.I. for a report on the event only to come up empty. Not to worry though, a full article is on the King County web site under King County News. There I learned 130 people attended and heard councilmembers Ferguson and Dow Constantine along with former Councilmember Lois North and other “experts” laud the idea. Apparently, no one at the meeting voiced any opposition or at least none was mentioned in the article. If you where there, I’d appreciate hearing your comments. Somehow, I just don’t think all 130 attendees were swooning over spending tax dollars to fund campaigns for public office.
