Log On To Track Campaign Cash

Friday, Oct. 8, 2010

Checking out campaign finance reports used to be left to bureaucrats and newspaper reporters, but in San Diego anyone who logs on to the Internet can check on the latest in contributions and expenditures for local races.

Launched by the San Diego Ethics Commission, the site is the result of  the new requirement of the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) to post the data online.

The financial summaries include the council races as well as  a measure to increase the local sales tax.

The Web site will be updated throughout the election season, and should prove an invaluable resource for the voters.
