Ventura board of supes moves to repeal campaign limit

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors in California has voted to repeal a local campaign finance ordinance that has been in place for 20 years. 

The ordinance placed a limit of $750 on contributions for candidates running for supervisor and countywide offices. With the ordinance now repealed, the county will follow state laws on contribution limits, which currently stands at $5,500 per election. 

The move has been met with opposition, with many urging the board to protect the current campaign finance rules to protect the voices of average voters instead of favoring special interests with deep pockets. 

The board will vote again on March 28 to adopt a new ordinance that repeals the current one.
