Oakland Council to Vote on Improving Political Transparency

The Oakland City Council is slated to vote Tuesday on a new law that would improve transparency during political campaigns and save the city money. The ordinance, co-sponsored by Councilwoman Libby Schaaf, City Attorney Barbara Parker, and City Clerk Latonda Simmons, would require all political candidates and committees to file their campaign finance reports electronically so that voters can go online to see who is financing political campaigns.
