Portland, OR – Clean Elections Policy Passed
A clean elections bill was approved on a 5-3 vote by the Portland City Council this week.

For City Council at-large candidates, an initial $10,000 could then supplemented by an additional $30,000 in matching funds, with $4,000 and $12,000, respectively, available to district specific candidates.
