The new law that could end super PACs and limit foreign corporate spending in local elections

On Thursday, June 22, 2017 the St. Petersburg City Council Committee of the Whole voted to move forward an ordinance to abolish super PACs and  prohibit spending by foreign-influenced corporations in city elections. The ordinance is the first of its kind in the nation.

Free Speech For People, American Promise-Tampa Bay, the League of Women Voters of St. Petersburg, and other allies played a critical role in launching this proposed ordinance.

We hope you will join this movement, and stand with St. Petersburg as the ordinance progresses through the process required to become law. Please check back in for updates on all related events and meeting details.

Most important at this moment, is a pledge drive to demonstrate citizen support for this ordinance. We must stand with St. Petersburg’s City Council should it become necessary to help defend the new law in court. We will not ask for fulfillment of your pledge until the case is actually underway.

Following this key victory, we are preparing for the next phase of this campaign.

Your pledge will go toward urgent and necessary support for the defense of St. Petersburg’s proposed ordinance to abolish super PACs and limit foreign corporate spending in city elections.
