Baltimore’s next step toward better government (Editorial)

In November 2018, Baltimore voters approved a charter amendment that created a fund to finance local campaigns but left the details to the City Council.  As the Baltimore Sun editorial board reports, the City Council has introduced legislation providing the structure of the public financing system. Under the proposed bill, the system would provide a multiple match on small contributions (see additional bill details here).  The editorial board encourages the council to work through any potential disagreements on the details, because “[p]ublic financing represents the best protection available against big corporations and political action committees.”
