Santa Monica Transparency Project
A group of concerned citizens formed the Santa Monica Transparency Project with the goal of making political contributions transparent so that election decisions are based on factual information. The findings were recently shared with the Santa Monica City Council to provide data on the campaign contribution limit for City Council elections. The group will continue to sort and organize campaign disclosure statements to determine sources of funds from special interest groups, businesses, and independent expenditure committees.
