Oakland Mayor’s Race Cap Is $95,000 for ‘Independent Committees’

The Oakland City Clerk’s Office has set the spending cap in the Oakland mayor’s race at $95,000 for so-called “independent” committees. The clerk’s office notified candidates yesterday about the spending limit. The cap became news earlier this week when the Express reported that a Sacramento group with close ties to ex-state Senator Don Perata revealed that it had exceeded the spending limit, thereby allowing all candidates, including Perata, to spend as much as they wanted on the mayor’s race.
