Legislative Business:
Council and staff discussed an ordinance repealing Section 2-13.00 to Section 2-13.07 of Hayward Municipal Code and adding Chapter 2, Article 13 regarding campaign contribution practices for city elective offices and ballot measures. According to staff report, current regulations do not require disclosures for independent committees, and do not define whether candidates can take out personal loans to fund campaigns. The proposed regulations would codify current Consumer Price Index (CPI) adjusted expenditure limits; allow personal bank loans; provide regulations for recall elections; and require disclosures for all independent committees. An independent committee is defined as Òperson or persons who spend $250 or more to influence election.Ó The proposed regulation would require independent committees to file a Committee Disclosure Statement and declaration to disclose sources of funds. Councilmember Al Mendall moved the item with the recommendation to clear the language on page 10 of the proposed ordinance concerning using inventory of printed campaign materials, as well as disclosure information for independent committees and candidates to be posted publicly.
