On Monday night, Anne Arundel County Council passed a long-awaited small donor Public Campaign Financing Fund for County Executive and County Council candidates.

“In our democracy, the depth of your pockets should not dictate the volume of your voice,” said Maryland PIRG director, Emily Scarr. “Anne Arundel County just struck a major blow to the role of big money in elections and is building on Maryland’s national leadership on campaign finance reform.”

The Coalition members applauded County Executive Pittman for spearheading the bill and the County Council for passing in a press release.
