I am joining Women's March SLO in asking that you limit special interest money in local politics.

I ask that you adhere to the California Political Reform Act and limit special interest money in politics by amending the proposed SLO County ordinance 30.2 to cap contributions at the State limit of $4,700 per person, instead of the proposed limit of $25,000 - or 5 times the limit set by the State's Political Reform Act.

The negative impact of special interest money on elections puts our democracy at risk. Elected representatives should be connecting with voters and addressing their needs and concerns, not committing to big donors and special interests.

Each of the 10 elective county offices that this ordinance applies to - the Board of Supervisors, County Assessor, District Attorney, Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector-Public Administrator, Clerk Recorder, and Sheriff-Coroner - should have the same campaign contribution cap of $4,700 per person.

Please act now to amend SLO County Ordinance 30.2 to the limit of $4,700.
