Ward 6 Council candidate Charles Allen issued the following statement about pending campaign finance reforms:
"I'm glad to see the Council's Government Operations committee move to close the campaign finance "LLC loophole," but I believe the Council should do more. If elected, I'll push for stronger reforms. But I also won't wait on this Council to act. In our campaign, we are only accepting individual contributions to focus on accountability and transparency. One way to restore the public trust is for candidates to hold themselves to a high standard and give the public full transparency. I believe all candidates for public office should do the same."
