In 1994, Laguna Beach adopted a campaign ordinance proposed by the League of Women Voters, Common Cause, and Shirley Grindle of Time is Now — Clean Up Politics, known as TINCUP, an organization dedicated to campaign finance reform of state, county and local elections. This ordinance placed a limitation on campaign contributions for the offices of City Council, City Clerk and City Treasurer. The campaign contribution limit for the current election cycle is $330. Since the League of Women Voters was one of the primary advocates for this ordinance, we feel a particular responsibility to see that compliance with this ordinance and other required campaign disclosure regulations is uniform.
