It was earlier reported that the Ethics Commission would not have enough funds to FULLY provide the matching fund for the campaigns of all the candidates who may qualify for public matching funding.
Surprise - Surprise - Surprise! The 9/17 Examiner under Your Taxes At Work page 5 reports money has been found to fully fund anyone who qualifies for public financing to the tune of $43,750 each instead of the more limited $26,800.
Now where was this sudden taxpayer funded wealth found?
Proposition O required setting aside $2.00 per resident based on the census to a fund for matching funding.
P.S. The 9/17 Examiner is not yet on-line on their web site.
