City expands campaign finance rules

Campaign finance rules that govern regular city elections are now in place for a special election in June to replace Councilman Frank Quintero, following a unanimous City Council vote Tuesday.

The council needed to clean up the regulations, which didn’t apply to special elections.

The rules include a $1,000 cap on individual contributions and a five-month period after the election to pay off campaign debt through fundraising.

The council appointed Quintero to an open seat after he did not run for reelection in April. He replaced former Councilman Rafi Manoukian, who was elected City Treasurer.

Quintero said during Tuesday’s council meeting that he will not run in the June election. Whoever does run and wins will be a council member for 10 months before they must run again in April 2015 for a full four-year term.

The City Clerk plans to bring more information about the election to the council in December or January, according to a city report.
