SAN ANTONIO (June 21, 2018) — “In July of 2017 I put forward a Council Consideration Request that called for municipal campaigns to report the employer and occupation for any contributor that contributed in excess of $100 in aggregate to any municipal campaign during a single reporting period.

 

Today a majority of Council voted to do just that, which will shine additional light on how our campaigns are funded and who is funding them.

 

Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis once remarked “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants”, and today I am pleased that residents will get the transparency they have called for.”
