Campaign finance changes coming to Columbus

On November 28, 2018, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther announced new campaign finance proposals that would limit individual contributions to $12,707.79. Currently, the City of Columbus does not cap campaign contributions, and if passed, this new amount would mirror the contribution limit currently set for State of Ohio officials. Critics argue that the proposed amount is too high, as compared to limits of $5,000 and $1,000 in Cleveland and Cincinnati, respectively. Columbus City Council will vote on these proposed changes at its December 10 meeting.
