SF: Prop H – Prohibiting Elected Officials, Candidates, or Committees They Control from Soliciting or Accepting Contributions from Certain City Contractors

Shall it be unlawful for City elected officials, candidates or political committees they control to solicit or accept campaign contributions from contractors who are prohibited from making contributions to these elected officials, candidates and political committees because the contractor has a pending contract or a recently approved contract before the official or the Board on which the official or an appointee of the official sits?

Proposition H is a pretty open and shut case.

Mayor Gavin Newsom sponsored proposition H which would make it illegal for government officials to receive monetary contributions from contractors whose contracts were approved by said officials.

I agree with Mayor Newsom. Taking money from contractors whose contracts are approved by the same board in which the official sits upon looks shady. The transaction would call into question a possibility of backroom deals and personal favors. There would be complaints and eventually a commission somewhere would need to be held to clear the air which would cost the residents money. In order to nip the whole process in the bud, vote yes on proposition H.

Vote no on proposition H if you feel officials should receive contributions from any contractor no matter the dealings between the two.
