The Line: Are Democracy Dollars A Fix For Public Financing of Campaigns

1312 Line Democracy Dollars

September 20, 2019 – In November, Albuquerque will ask voters to approve changes to the city’s public campaign finance system. Each of two proposals would add 75 cents to the dollar-per-voter level the city uses now. That would mean hundreds of thousands of dollars extra for candidates who qualify. One proposal would also provide $25 vouchers for Democracy Dollars, which would allow voters to donate to the publicly financed candidate of their choice.

Line Panelists:
Dan Foley, Former State Representative
Sophie Martin, Attorney
Janice Arnold-Jones, Former State Representative
Michael Barrio, Prosperity Works
