Highlights of H.R. 1:
Aurora residents deserve a campaign finance system that is transparent and fair. They want a democracy where everyone’s voice is heard and everyone plays by fair and common sense rules. Aurora has an opportunity to adopt best practices that have been implemented in many Colorado municipalities that will bring our campaign finance system into the modern era and make the system work better for all Aurora residents.
To that end, the Aurora Campaign Finance Coalition (CleanSlateNow Action, Colorado Common Cause, Colorado Working Families Party, Indivisible Colorado CD6, DSA Colorado, Our Revolution Metro Denver, and PDA Colorado) is working with Aurora City Council and other Aurora city officials to improve and modernize Aurora’s outdated campaign finance laws.The new city ordinance, if adopted, makes the following improvements:
Establishes New Limits on Campaign Contributions & Use of Campaign Funds
CreatesTransparency for Campaign Contributions & Expenditures
Provides for Greater Oversight & Enforcement of City Campaign Finance Law
Creates Clear & Comprehensive Definitions of Key Terms
Publicly Financed Campaign Model Also Under Consideration
The coalition continues to welcome feedback and input on the Crystordinance. Our democracy is stronger when we all participate, and this ordinance is no exception. Together we can reform and improve our campaign finance system with laws that amplify the voices of everyday Coloradans, require strong disclosure, improve trust in our elections, and make sure everyone plays by the same common sense rules.
