Program Description

  Public Elections Fund

Article IV of Chapter 16 of the County Code requires the Director of Finance to create a Public Election Fund to provide public campaign financing for qualified candidates for County Executive or County Council. The law is intended to encourage more candidates who do not have access to large contributions from interest groups or individuals to run for County elective offices. This NDA provides for the distribution of public contributions to qualified candidates in a contested election. This funding level was recommended by the Public Election Fund Committee.
