Baltimore City is considering establishing a Fair Elections Fund to stand up to large and corporate donors and empower Baltimore residents in local elections.

In April, Baltimore City Councilman Kristerfer Burnett, along with 8 City Council Cosponsors, introduced Council Bill 18-0229, an amendment to the Baltimore City Charter to create the Fair Elections Fund and Blue Ribbon Commission.

If passed by the Baltimore City Council the Charter Amendment will need to be authorized by Baltimore voters on November’s ballot. The City Council will also have to pass companion legislation to hammer out the details of the program.
