3) Public Campaign Finance Commission

The City of Portland seeks members for its new Public Campaign Finance Commission. The commission will help implement the city’s new open and accountable elections program that allows candidates for city office to limit the size of donations they accept in exchange for matching funds from the city.

Learn more about the program and the commission, including how to apply, online. The first round of review will be Oct. 1, but applications may be submitted later.
