The city election results are in for Los Angeles, and voters overwhelmingly approved Measure H, which could pave the way for a more robust Fair Elections-style campaign system. Measure H also bans city contractors from donating or fundraising for city races, striking a blow to the pay-to-play culture.
With a whopping 75 percent backing the measure, this also sends a strong message that people in Los Angeles support honest government and a system of elections that puts voters first.
A big shout-out is in order for California Clean Money Campaign and California Common Cause, who worked tirelessly to win approval for Measure H. Other supporters of the measure include the California Council of Churches, California Nurses Association, and the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, among others.
This victory represents an important step toward Los Angeles elections that are about voters, not wealthy interests.
