Public Discussion of Montgomery County's New Public Campaign Finance System
On Monday, June 15 at 7:00pm, the County Council will join with both the Democratic and Republican Central Committees to sponsor A Public Discussion of Montgomery County’s New Public Financing System for County Elections. Last year the County Council passed a law instituting a new campaign finance system that provides matching public funds for candidates who follow new rules about accepting campaign donations.
The goal of the event is to educate the public on the new rules and provide a forum for questions to be asked and answered. On the panel will be former Councilmember Phil Andrews, who sponsored the new law, Jared DeMarinis of the State Board of Elections, and Bob Drummer, Senior Legislative Attorney for the County Council. All are welcome to attend the event, which will be held in the 3rd floor hearing room of the Council Office Building at 100 Maryland Ave, Rockville.
