CLC Letter Regarding 2021 Budget Allocation for Fair Elections Fund


On Oct. 15, 2020, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) sent a letter to Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, urging the Mayor not to decrease the revenue allocated to Denver's Fair Elections Fund in the city budget for 2021. In November 2018, over 70% of Denver voters approved creation of the Fair Elections Fund via ballot measure, and, beginning in the 2023 election cycle, the new public financing program will provide participating city candidates with matching funds at a 9-to-1 rate, for small campaign contributions given by residents of Denver. In the letter to Mayor Hancock, CLC stresses the importance of fully funding Denver's Fair Elections Fund in the 2021 budget to ensure the new public financing program's successful implementation.
